SpaceShipOne won the Ansari X-Prize on
4 Oct 2004, ushering in the era of Private Spaceflight
          Commercial
Spaceflight
SpaceShipTwo

Spaceflight
2.0
         is undergoing extensive flight tests.
     500 people have already bought tickets!
Flight
Profile
Suborbital
Science
   Advantages:
    high flight rates, low
    cost, manned or
    unmanned, reaches
    places too high for
    planes/balloons but too
    low for sounding
    rockets/orbital spacecraft

   Fields of study:             “Ignorosphere”
    earth science,
    atmospheric science,
    planetary science,
    heliophysics, astronomy,
    microgravity science, life
    science, aeromedicine,
    aeronautics
Putting
the
“Crew”
in
  Commercial
Crew




       A4H fills the gap between the
       flight provider and the mission.
