Commercial Space Transportation: Development of the Commercial Space Launch Industry Presents Safety Oversight Challenges for FAA: Congressional Testimony
Gerald L. Dillingham (au)
In the last few years, the commercial space launch industry (CSLI) has moved further toward space tourism. Commercial space tourism promises to make human space travel available to the public for the first time. The Fed. Aviation Admin. (FAA) oversees the safety of commercial space launches, licensing and monitoring the safety of such launches and of spaceports. FAA is also responsible for overseeing the safety of space tourism, but it may not regulate crew and passenger safety before 2012 except in response to high-risk incidents, serious injuries, or fatalities. This testimony addresses: (1) recent trends in the CSLI; (2) challenges that FAA faces in overseeing the CSLI; and (3) emerging issues that will affect the federal role. Illustrations.
