On this week’s interview, Paul sits down with Doug Messier who writes and runs the website Parabolic Arc. The site itself deals with the private space industry and the many people and players involved in it.
Messier recently wrote an article, “Spaceport America and Virgin Galactic: The Numbers Never Added Up” which looks back at some promises made by Richard Branson and others involved with Virgin Galactic and Spaceport America and deconstructs the “pie in the sky” promises made. Finally, Paul and Doug discuss the safety of the rockets being launched at the Spaceport.
