Space News from Virtual Amanda Bush

Here is the October/November 2014 episode of The Virtual SpaceTV 3D show with Amanda Bush. She begins with reports on two accidents in commercial space: The destruction of the Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo rocketplane during a test flight and the explosion shortly after liftoff of the Orbital Sciences Antares rocket. These stories are followed by an item about the successfuly return to earth of a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft with scientific cargo from the International Space Station. There is also a report on the successful launch of an Atlas V rocket by United Launch Alliance (ULA). Amanda then gives the latest on the Rosetta mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and the plan to place a lander on the object. And she finishes with a story about the recent lunar fly-by and return landing of a Chinese test spacecraft, which was accompanied by the first private spacecraft launched for a fly-by of the Moon.

Boeing and SpaceX to Fly NASA Astroanauts to the ISS

As reported by Amanda Bush above, NASA recently selected Boeing and SpaceX for commercial space transportation providers. By 2014 each company is expected to operate a rocket and crew module system that will periodically take four NASA astronauts to the station and bring four back. Boeing will use the Atlas V rocket and the new CST-100 crew capsule. SpaceX will use their Falcon 9 rocket and the new Dragon V2. Here are promotional videos from each company about their respective crew transport systems:
