412 New Mexico and the Private Space Launch Revolution

On this week’s interview Paul talks to private space expert Doug Messier of the private space tracking  site “Parabolic Arc.”

While the ongoing frustration of the failures at Spaceport America cast doubt on the future of Virgin Galactic, the private space launch “revolution” is moving forward quickly to step in for NASA. Unfortunately, Virgin Galactic remains stuck “on the runway.” Paul and Doug discuss Virgin Galactic and some of their other business models as well as the Spaceport America-based “Spinlaunch” which has received millions of dollars in subsidies from the State of New Mexico for their unproven technology.
