Comins Discusses Space Travel Outlook

University of Maine astronomer and professor of physics Neil Comins was interviewed for a Channel 2 (WLBZ) news report Thursday on the privatization of space travel as a trend of the future. Thursday’s successful splashdown of the privately owned commercial spacecraft, Dragon, after resupplying the International Space Station, was the inaugural sign of what’s to come. Comins also said commercialization of space travel could make it easier for a space tourism industry to develop.
