ASTRONAUTS DISCUSS COMMERCIAL SPACE FLIGHT AT USNA
Family vacation to the moon? A picnic in suborbital space? A Martian sabbatical? While these suggestions may sound like the elements of a science fiction novel, NASA astronauts introduced the concept of commercial space flight - and eventual travel to Mars - as realistic possibilities during a presentation at the Naval Academy Jan. 14. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden (USNA ’68) and astronauts Robert Cabana (USNA ’71), Mike LopezAlegria (USNA ’80), Stephen Bowen (USNA ’86) and Frank Culbertson (USNA ’71) each had something to say about the history of the space program, from landing on the moon to the introduction of the International Space Station.
