Last week, right after I finished sending my propellant depot white paper in to the Augustine Committee, I got contacted by David Shiga of New Scientist with some questions for an article he was writing. The article is now available online, and while it probably doesn’t say much that is new for most readers here, I think it’s great that this concept is getting more and more serious attention in public. It’s also good to hear that ULA is starting to publicly mention the CRYOTE (CRYogenic Orbital TEstbed) work that they’re doing in conjunction with NASA and some contractors. There should be some more public info on that at SPACE 2009, so I’ll probably blog about that at that point.
