New company aims to send humans back to the moon
Washington (AFP) Dec 6, 2012
Two former top NASA officials unveiled plans Thursday to sell manned flights to the moon by the end of the decade, in an announcement 40 years after the last human set foot there. Spaceflight, long the province of national governments, has moved toward increased commercialization in recent years, with private companies for the first time successfully launching rockets into orbit. The US space agency, in the hopes of keeping costs down, even retired its space shuttles in 2011. NASA has instead pa ... read more
