2015 Link Dump

2015 has already gotten off to a blazing start and I haven’t even finished writing my 2014 year in review essays. SpaceX had the first launch of the year, with a successful Falcon 9 launch and then Dragon rendezvous at ISS. Some space politics have already been in the news this year with Sierra Nevada’s protest of the NASA commercial crew contract being struck down.

I expect 2015 to be just as busy as 2014, with a lot of exciting things to look forward to from robotic exploration, to human spaceflight, to commercial and “New Space”. I am writing an essay about what I think 2015 has the potential to be remembered for. In the mean time, here are some thoughts from other space bloggers about what 2015 has in store.

Here is Spaceflight Now’s worldwide launch schedule (continuously updated).

The Wikipedia 2015 in spaceflight article isn’t a bad reference either.
