Every once in awhile, I come across editorials like this, especially when a new company heads for low Earth orbit, claiming we are in a new "golden age" of spaceflight and this is just like the fledgeling aviation industry the 1930's. Nothing against Blue Origin, their unqualified success opens their door to space and possible sub orbital operations. But does this mean in 10 years we're going to see the orbital hotel depicted in 2001 and a people spending vacations on the lunar surface? No. Not yet anyhow. Spaceflight is still very expensive and an inherently a risky business. The more players on the field however should help reduce the expense of getting to low Earth Orbit. The risk however will still be out there, as the losses we suffered with the OrbitalATK Antares and the Virgin Galactic VSS Enterprise in late October 2014 and the loss of the 59 Progress cargo ship this week demonstrate. Spaceflight isn't "routine" and there is always something out there that will come back to bite you if you are not vigilant. Make spaceflight safe as air travel and affordable to John and Jane Citizen and not Seymour Moneybags, then you may have something.
