NewSpace - Is this the Advent of the Second Space Age?

Over the past few years, it has been becoming more and more difficult to not notice a promising upsurge in activities in the commercial space industry. The developments in the space sector seem to be experiencing a fundamental shift from heavy dependence on government agencies towards a more independent private sector with quite a few dominant players. Case in point, Elon Musk and the ground-breaking technologies developed by SpaceX or Richard Branson and the space tourism efforts of Virgin Galactic, are the front-runners of what is already being touted as the "Second Space Age". These names, among other developments in the commercial sector of the space industry, fit under the umbrella term of "NewSpace."

Reusability - Through NewSpace Lenses

This past year has seen the space sector take some remarkably huge leaps forward. The NewSpace companies, by their focused approach to it, have redefined reusability, and brought it within reach of our technology. If you missed all the excitement, or seem unsure what it is all about, now might be the time to get up to speed and catch an early glimpse of the future, because it’s here. What remains to be seen is where we can go from here- the universe is on our doorstep.
