DailyDirt: More Manned Spaceflight

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Manned spaceflight has obviously seen better days. There aren't that many ambitious spaceflights that actually have solid funding these days, but there are still a lot of plans and desire for manned space exploration to resume again. Here are just a few projects that might get off the ground. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    What if nuclear power was the only way to progress to the next level?

    I thought we weren't supposed to invent fusion power until 2050? Those guys should be working on inventing those microwave satellites instead.
