The Modern Day Kitty Hawk

Click the arrow to watch the video on YouTube. Video source: All Things Aero.

The web site All Things Aero recently posted the above video about the Mojave Air & Space Port in southern California.

The port is arguably the epicenter for NewSpace. Virgin Galactic, XCOR, Stratolaunch, Masten Space Systems, Scaled Composites, Orbital Sciences and more have operations here.

Lots of great quotes in the video, but my favorite is this one from Kevin Mickey, the President of Scaled Composites:

The enemy of innovation is the intolerance for risk and some failure.

That quote pretty much sums up the difference between NewSpace and OldSpace.
