From HobbySpace RLV and Space Transport News:

The cover article for the October issue of Popular Science is about Transformational Space. It reviews the history of the company and discusses the various hardware tests they have carried out.

The article also goes into the company’s strategy of trying to convince NASA to fund it separately from the CEV program for the specific purpose of ISS crew transport. Total funding could reach $500M but it would come in increments as milestones were met.

(As I understand it, the current NASA plan is for t/Space to compete with other entrepreneurial companies for commercial crew/cargo services funding that will come out of the Innovative Partnerships Program.)

The article is written by Michael Belfiore. Check out his blog: Dispatches from the Final Frontier.
