15 USC CHAPTER 84 - COMMERCIAL SPACE COMPETITIVENESS Sec. 5808. Commercial Space Achievement Award




In 2008, the Commercial Space Award was presented to The Spaceship Company, jointly formed between Scaled Composites (Mojave, CA) led by Doug Shane, President, and Virgin Galactic (UK) led by Will Whitehorn, President, for its ground breaking efforts to commercialize personal spaceflight. The Spaceship Company manufactures new launch aircraft, spaceships and support equipment and will market them to spaceline operators, including the launch customer, Virgin Galactic. In July 2008, the developers rolled out VMS Eve, the carrier aircraft that will transport SS2 and private astronauts, science experiments and payloads on a sub-orbital space experience."

The Oxygen Use section could use links regarding the use of LOX as an oxidizer for rocket propulsion. I'll see what I can find.
