Commercial spaceflight

Before President Ronald Reagan signed the Commercial Space Launch Act of 1984, companies could only rely on NASA to send payloads (like satellites) to space. Commercial spaceflight companies operate independently from NASA, but many of them have existing contracts with the agency to deliver cargo to space. Mars One still insists that it can make the first-ever human settlement on the red planet happen... with a little help from reality TV. http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/18/commercial-space-flight-explainer/ #tech
