Washington D.C.- A new industry is forming that will offer routine, safe and affordable flights to space. The Suborbital Coalition consists of suborbital service providers, science and education organizations and others who are dedicated to making this ground-breaking capability accessible to researchers, students, teachers and others across the country.

Suborbital spaceflight will bring unique opportunities for students to fly their experiments into space, inspiring an entire generation of innovators for years to come. Please watch the Suborbital Coalition web page to follow real world researchers and students as they design, build, test and fly their experiments on suborbital platforms. Groups from Purdue University and University of Central Florida will take you through their trials and triumphs and share their experience in a series of video and blog entries on the Suborbital Coalition webpage starting next month.

The Coalition will work with government agencies, nonprofits, national and educational organizations to find opportunities to do research more easily, quickly and cheaply than ever before. It will facilitate interaction between policymakers in Washington, researchers and educators on the emerging frontier of suborbital spaceflight.
