The commercial space industry can provide significant space technology advanced if nurtured, Alex Tai, vice president of operations for Virgin Galactic, said.
“Technical expertise is much better than what’s being demonstrated” in the space industry, he said April 12 at the National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colo. “…“I’m very optimistic” about the market as “there are millions of people who can do this” if given the incentive for initiative. “… Lockheed [Martin] and those types of players, in a burgeoning market, will be forced to change to keep up with newer competitors in the market.”
