Another Space Nerd Roundup

The Atlantic has a conversation with Eric Anderson of Space Adventures: The Coming Age of Space Colonization.

I remember this stuff being a big deal in the late 70’s; you couldn’t pick up a fanboy magazine without slogging through a lot of fanciful stories about how we by gosh were going to have a huge, impossibly advanced space colony within the next decade or so (Spin up the wayback machine: remember Omni and “L5 by ’95”? Admit it, already).

And in the “how to get there” category: CalTech Assigns Students to Design a Mars Mission, or at least to one of its moons.

Finally, closer to home: SpaceX Dragon Splashes Down, Completing CRS-2 Mission. This is becoming less and less newsworthy, which is a good thing.
