What private businesses working on space flight? by dave Q: What private businesses are working on space flight other than SpaceShipOne/SpaceShipTwo that is a spaceplane, SpaceShipOne is an experimental air-launched suborbital spaceplane that uses a hybrid rocket motor.. And SpaceX reusable launch vehicles - the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 - and the Dragon series of space capsules. SpaceX designs, tests and fabricates .. Who are working on Single-stage-to-orbit SSTO ? Any countries or private businesses workin on it ? Was Bigelow not working on some thing ..

A: spaceX

Constellation vs COTS? by f_valyn Q: Most people, when they talk about a shuttle replacement, refer to Constellation. However, its just as plausable to talk about SpaceX's Dragon, or the K-1, since they are part of the COTS program. Why is that? Furthermore, which do you think will fly first - Constellation and Orion, Dragon and Falcon 9, or the K-1

A: mostly a holdover from the days when we used to trust NASA. it was inconceivable that a private company could launch a 'Vulture 1' and compete with the US government. now, its not so certain. both the dragon and k-1 look viable, and the current space program needs them... but i want to withhold judgement until i see either docking at the ISS.

A: Bigelow is working on inflatable structures to build a private space station. But he is contracting with others, including Space-X, to launch his modules. Armadillo Aerospace is still working on their vehicles but they are not even ready for suborbital flights yet, and don't seem like they will be any time soon. They would not be SSTO anyway.

Space X COTS 1, Falcon 2? by mikedelta Q: Did spacex recover the reusable falcon 9 1st stage? and if so what are the requirements and cost entailed in readying it for its next flight? i meant COTS !, Falcon9 flight 2.

A: No, they did not recover the first stage. But they gathered more data from this attempt and Elon is confident they can recover one in the next year or two.

(Astronomy) How would you go to the moon?? (Easy)? by James J Q: Which would be the best ROCKET to use to get to the moon? (with no ppl in it) SpaceX Falcon 9, Atlas 4, Delta 3, or other? and why would you choose that one though...

A: The cheapest one of course. That would be Falcon I think.

Why is the SpaceX launch window for the ISS trip so narrow? by Q: The Falcon 9 launch window for the ISS mission is about 1 second. What's the deal?

A: That's a perfectly valid question. Here's one plausible explanation: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2012/05/the-launch-pad-spacex-falcon-9-ready-for-liftoff/ (next to last paragraph).

What happened to the First falcon 9 Spacex built? by Eric P Q: http://spaceflightnow.com/falcon/090112f9vertical/ If you look there they had a mostly completed rocket to use for ground tests. then instead of finishing that, they built new ones for the first two launches. What happened to the first one?

A: If anything, drop them a line here - http://www.spacex.com/

What ever happened to the Spacex Falcon 9 assembled at Cape Canaveral last year? by Eric P Q: the pictures of the components for the next two launches show all new hardware. let me clarify, they built a rocket and test fired it at LC-40. They then took it back to California, and built new components for the first and second launches. What happened to the one they had set up back in January? http://spaceflightnow.com/falcon/090112f9vertical/- this is the rocket I am talking about.

A: The Spacex Falcon 9 is a commercial rocket designed and built by Spacex Exploration Technologies. They are built and assembled as needed when private companies contract with them to get their payloads into orbit. NASA has contracted with Spacex to use their rocket for resupply of the ISS once the space shuttle has been retired. Other government agencies and private companies can purchase a launch of the Falcon 9 for roughly $50 million. Spacex does have a disclaimer that reserve the right to find a co-passenger if you use less than 80% of the 23,000 pound payload. Always be sure to read the fine print before deciding on a low Earth orbit launch and delivery system.

Why was the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch aborted at the last half-second? by Q: I was somewhat disappointed that they had to abort at the last second but at least they'll be able to fix any miscalculations that could have caused an accident. Anyway, what was the cause of the launch being aborted and when will they attempt another launch?
