The Privatization of Space Exploration

This past year has been quite exciting year for the popups of private space companies. With the NASA budget decreasing, and looming budget issues within the US, privatization of space offers a glimmer of hope. I’m actually pretty excited to see how this pans out in the next few years.

Wired has a great overview of some of the private sector progress for space exploration.

It may be a few years before many of these things come to pass. In the mean time, here are some videos from a few of these companies to offer hope for future space exploration.
