      Costs not rocketing as Colorado firms embrace space boom

      COLORADO SPRINGS — Sometime in the past decade, the idea of launching private rockets into space for cheap became reality.

      Just in the past two years, space newcomers SpaceX, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic have launched more than a dozen rockets. Some made it successfully to space. Others didn't.

      Last week, at the annual Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, commercial companies talked about how the race to bring down the cost even more is gaining momentum, at least in theory.

      “We’re not a company that does only one spacecraft, one mission at a time,” said Guy Beutelschies, LMSS' director of interplanetary programs.…

      Colorado Springs— The heads of United Launch Alliance and SpaceX aren’t just rivals for launching U.S. military and commercial satellites into orbit. They don’t even see the business the same way.

      Growing strawberries in space isn't far from reality, says CU student

      Move over Mark Watney. On Mars, astronauts need to grow more than potatoes for food.

      And Heather Hava, a Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado, is working on it. The self-proclaimed "space gardener" has swapped out the fictional Watney for robots; potatoes for strawberries, basil and other greens; a botanist's mind for a horticulturist's — and added big data.

      Billionaires funding the space race will be real stars of Space Symposium in Colorado Springs

      Plenty of military brass will be at the Space Symposium that kicks off Monday night in Colorado Springs, but all those stars may not be enough to push the burgeoning commercial space business off center stage at the planet's largest trade show on all things orbital.
