Virgin Galactic’s Open Source Spaceship


What a great concept!   Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic is launching a spaceship project where they’ll apply to space flight the principles from Open Source software development – ie shared development by community without the encumbrances of profitable ownership.  Profit works best for some things, but in a space as innovative as space this is probably the best approach to get the job done faster.   Space Kudos to Branson!
