Sorry guys, I do actually have a lot to say about SpaceX, the new AST NPRM, and many other things, I’m just having a hard time getting started. It also isn’t helping that I keep getting tempted to write commentary about the whole NSA spying issue, and other more politically loaded topics. I’ve so far [...]

Well, Christmas was wonderful. As I mentioned, Tiff, Little Jonny and I drove up to Eugene, Oregon to spend the holiday with her family. While her brother Steven is still out on his mission in Indiana, her other five brothers were there as was her grandma. Her oldest brother Michael was there with his wife [...]
Hey all, I’m sorry I’ve been pretty quiet over the past few weeks. Maybe it’s a case of too much grist clogging up the mill, or maybe it’s a case of being too darned busy trying to build rockets, and design flight hardware… Anyhow, Tiff, Little Jon and I will be heading up to Oregon [...]
Man, it seems like just a couple months ago that I was regularly beating Clark to the punch on many of the interesting space scoops. Anyhow, my company’s VP for Business Development, Michael Mealling, went to the industry briefing for NASA’s Commercial Orbital Services Demonstration (COTS) last week seeing if anyone wanted us to trick-up [...]

Howdy all, Ken here. I know I’m not supposed to post on Sundays, but today is our NSS-NT Holiday Party so I’m feeling a bit spacy as I bundle together the gifts for our Santa Space Toy drive for charity, the kids space picture books for the Frontiers of Flight Museum reading library (a really [...]
Back in October, after the last session of the ACES conference, I bumped into Gene Meyers of the Space Island Group. He had given a brief talk during the conference about some of what his company was up to, including some more recent developments. At the time, I thought I had some timely and relevant [...]
Man, a guy stops posting for a week or two so he can go test rocket engines, and this is what he gets? Crickets chirping? Not even a single link or comment? What, do I need to post something more controversial? Or have I just flogged the whole ESAS dead horse a bit too much?
