The Future of Private Spaceflight
- May 16, 2013
If you've ever dreamed of soaring to the stars, liftoff may be coming sooner than you think. Just ask XCOR's Chief Test Engineer Doug Jones, who has designed a commercial suborbital spaceship that can fly up to four times a day, six days a week - sort of like an airplane. And for the low, low price of $95,000, you too can have a ticket to ride.
On Thursday, May 16, Doug and Reason Senior Editor Brian Doherty will sit down at Reason.tv's Los Angeles studios to discuss the future of private spaceflight - and why California may no longer be the launch pad for the final frontier. You are cordially invited to join us in the studio as well as for a post-taping lunch immediately afterwards.
Thursday, May 16
Studio doors open at 11:45 a.m.; taping begins at 12:00 p.m, with lunch to follow.
5737 Mesmer Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90230
