Commercial Space Adventure Taking Off

A commercial venture using old Soviet military space hardware (with systems upgrades) expects to be carrying researchers into orbit for up to a week within a few years. Excalibur Almaz Limited (EA) made its announcement today at the annual Moscow Air Show in Russia. The company has enlisted some well respected NASA and corporate veterans plus other space companies in its venture.

This is an exciting development as each serious commercial venture adds credibility to the growing commercial space industry as a whole.
