Commercial spaceflight vehicles enable lower-cost flights for science & research payloads:
Commercial spacecraft, including suborbital vehicles, will allow unprecedented access to the space environment and a new way to engage scientists, university researchers, and students.
The scientific community is reacting enthusiastically to the promise of these vehicles, with over 700 scientists total participating in a series of workshops and two major conferences with suborbital vehicle developers.
NASA also quickly recognized the potential of commercial suborbital spacecraft, and has taken initial steps through the formation of the NASA Commercial Suborbital Research Program at NASA Ames Research Center and NASA Dryden Flight Research Center.
