Lowering the Cost of Space Flight

On November 13th, 2006, Blue Origin had a successful test flight of a vehicle that is one step towards development of a launch / landing system for future spacecraft.  According to their sight they are “working, patiently and step-by-step, to lower the cost of spaceflight so that many people can afford to go and so that we humans can better continue exploring the solar system.”

That is, in my opinion, a goal that is both noble and large.  I wish them the best of luck.  I would love to travel into space in my lifetime, although I doubt that technology will move fast enough for that to happen without winning the lottery!  😉  Thanks to people like those at Blue Origin my son and daughter may have that opportunity in their lifetime and that brings at least some satisfaction.
