Introduction: Welcome to the Commercial Suborbital Research Program collaboration forum. NASA, the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, and the Universities Space Research Association have begun collaborations with commercial suborbital transportation providers to explore the opportunities for science, technology, education and workforce development enabled by frequent, affordable, autonomous and human-tended suborbital research.
Workshop Results: This site is intended to provide information on upcoming workshops and events, and share results from prior workshops. The following Workshops have been held to date:
December 15, 2008 -- Suborbital Science Workshop I -- Focus: Earth and Space Science
May 3, 2009 -- Suborbital Science Workshop II -- Focus: Biomedical and Microgravity Science
Benefits of Commercial Suborbital Research: Through a user-focused program, private and government-sponsored researchers, engineers, technologists and educators will be able to conduct innovative, low-cost, research activities in near-space:
