Hearing Charter

"The introduction of new commercial suborbital reusable launch vehicles (SRVs) in the private sector has enabled the emergence of new markets. A number of these new companies are already testing their vehicles and plan to initiate commercial operations within a few years. This hearing will examine the potential launch markets and applications for SRVs, the unique benefits that SRVs offer the scientific community for research, and the regulatory uncertainties that currently have the most impact on the emerging commercial SRV industry."

Witness statements: Carissa Christensen, Alan Stern, George Whitesides, Bretton Alexander, Andrew Nelson, Stephan R. McCandliss
