Commercial  Space has a bright future in 2019

There has been a lot of talk about reductions in the workforce at some of the major companies in Commerical Space, that along with the recent U.S government shutdown, and possibly a second one in the next few weeks has led some to think rather pessimistic about 2019, when in reality we have a lot to look forward to.

We are going through some of the same things that Commerical Airlines went through when airlines were deregulated in the United States, there was and still is some contraction of airlines, and yes reductions in workforces at some.
2019 will see the return of the launching of manned space flights from U.S Soil, that along with the initial assembly of the Space Launch System and continued launches by providers to the ISS. These along with exciting progress by new players in the Commerical Space sector leads me to believe that this time next year I will be writing about all the great accomplishments we have made and our plans for the next year.
We have a lot to look forward to and to accomplish, let's do it.
