I’ve just learned that Rocketplane has in fact approached the FAA about their spaceship in progress. I don’t know anything beyond that at this point, will let you know when I do.
That’s the sound of me backpedaling just a bit. Seems Rocketplane really is serious about following through. I apologize for suggesting otherwise.
I remain skeptical about the company’s plan, but I’d like to be proven wrong. I say a good healthy dose of skepticism never hurt anyone about to climb into a commercial spaceship fueled with explosive liquids. Keep the feedback coming….
