United States Air Force Space Pitch Day

From Forbes and Starburst:

Elon Musk told a group of assembled space entrepreneurs that if they can build a rocket component better than SpaceX can, “we would love to buy that,” noting  his private space startup used to build the landing legs for its Falcon 9 rocket but now buys them from race car manufacturer All American Racers. “We’d love to outsource more.”

All Aboard the Microlauncher!

From Space Tech Expo USA:

During our research, it became apparent that the microlauncher industry excites many. This soon-to-become-operational market will open up a new avenue for bringing satellites and other small spacecraft into orbit. This market will be able to widen the launch bottleneck and provide a fast launch service to the thousands of small satellites to be launched within the next decade

The biggest rocket launches and space missions we’re looking forward to in 2018

From The Verge:

Next year is already overflowing with exciting missions to space. NASA is launching a new lander to Mars, as well as a spacecraft that will get closer to the Sun than ever before. And two of NASA’s vehicles already in space will finally arrive at their intended targets: one will rendezvous with a nearby asteroid, while another will pass by a distant space rock billions of miles from Earth.
