Post FAA hearing on orbital spaceflight rules   Posted on: Thu May 05, 2011 10:58 am
There's a hearing in Florida on regulations for commercial orbital human spaceflight. It's open to the public, and you can also submit your opinion in writing. More here and supposedly here, although the link appears to be dead (but maybe it's just not accessible outside the US).

So, what do you think about
  • What the appropriate mix of performance-based, process- based, and prescriptive requirements should be,
  • What the appropriate level of safety is that the FAA should target with its regulations,
  • What, if any, should be the medical requirements for space flight participants,
  • How best to incorporate government and industry standards into the licensing process,
  • How much flight testing should be required, and
  • How much control over a spacecraft ground personnel and flight crew should have?

Say, can you feel the thunder in the air? Just like the moment ’fore it hits – then it’s everywhere
What is this spell we’re under, do you care? The might to rise above it is now within your sphere
