The People of NewSpace: Jess Sponable and Tom Ingersoll – Revolutionary Access to Space

The twentieth of thirty six reasons to attend ISPCS. From the past to the future, Aircraft-like reusable flight to space portends an exciting future that promises to revolutionize both personal and commercial spaceflight. Sponable, the Program Manager of the experimental spaceplane XS-1 at DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office and Ingersoll, head of Skybox Imaging, identify technical challenges of spaceflight along with progress made by both the commercial and government sectors to retire the risk. A key XS-1 goal of “aircraft-like operations” including flying 10 times in 10 days is offered as a disruptive agent for change: helping push the commercial and government sectors into the 21st century of routine, reliable and low cost spaceflight.
