Golden Spike, whose board includes former NASA engineers and spaceflight experts, has been working under the radar for the last two and a half years to develop their mission architecture, and unveiled their company after several weeks of internet rumors. Their intended clients are not private individuals for a space tourism scheme, but rather governments

At the risk of sounding like a naysayer... :wink:

I'll wait to see what kind of deep pockets investors they land before I give them much of a chance. If you go to an AIAA or SAS convention you can't swing a sliderule without hitting an old NASA guy who has a grandiose plan for something in space.
