NASA must explore beyond low Earth orbit, to refresh our nation’s pioneering spirit and excite the public.
But the Augustine Commission said NASA needed more money to do that.
So, NASA must become more efficient.
Many ways the private sector can help, but here are two:
COTS was a program for competitively awarded, fixed-price contracts to develop vehicles for cargo delivery to the International Space Station
Resupply contracts were awarded for flights to Orbital and SpaceX
SpaceX launched a test flight on December 8, 2010 and is expected to launch again in the next two months
Orbital expected to launch later this summer
Vehicles were developed for far cheaper than previous development efforts, indicating that this is a model that should be used more
Competitively awarded, fixed-price contracts to develop vehicles for crew delivery to the International Space Station
Round two is in progress, with four companies funded to produce systems for use in their eventual vehicles: SpaceX, Sierra Nevada, Blue Origin and Boeing, countless subcontractors
Next round is CCiCap:
Grants, SBIR/STTR, Centennial challenges
