Lunar Lander Challenged

One small step for NASA, One giant leap for the X Prize

Perfect rocket rules?

May 30 is the deadline for comments to the FAA on proposed rules governing Experimental Permits for Reusable Suborbital Rockets.

Links to the proposed rules and the register of comments can be found at Selenian Boondocks, Jonathan Goff’s place. Jon works for Masten Space, and he’s a little worried about the total lack of feedback the FAA has received so far:

Does everyone just think that this is the epitome of Rules-y Goodness and Purity or something?

We’re going to be preparing and submitting our comments in the next day or so, and I encourage any of you who have useful comments to make (and even some wingbats–after all, we can always use people who are so crazy that they make all of our comments seem like sweet reason in comparison) to join us. This is kind of important guys!

Some background on the rules from Jesse Londin’s Space Law Probe, via RLV and Space Transport News.
