SpaceX "Rocket Man" Interview

LMU, the magazine of Loyola Marymount University, has published an interview with Tom Mueller, Vice-President of Propulsion and Development at SpaceX.

The article is in a question-and-answer format. I like the last Q&A:

What’s next in space travel?
Until now, the trajectory has been all wrong. We went to the moon in 1969. Then we got stuck in low-Earth orbit with the space shuttle. And now we don’t even have that any more. I’m hoping that this is the beginning of a commercial revolution in terms of access to space. I think there are going to be a lot of startups. Hopefully, we’re going to bring spaceflight back so that it will be at the forefront of people’s attention. That’s what SpaceX is all about.
