Space Flight Forum

With a huge increase in privately funded space exploration success over the past few years and with at least five separate space themed threads running in Jet Blast alone, would it be possible to have a dedicated Space Flight Forum?

Thanks.

If PPRuNe doesn't come up with anything are you aware of this place?

collectSPACE: Messages - space history, space memorabilia, space artifacts, and space collectibles

Funnily enough a big chunk of it is devoted to collectibles and the formats a bit clunky but the messages section is actually a forum in it's own right and over the years has attracted some posters with some very interesting backgrounds, in fact sometimes very very interesting backgrounds.

The increase in traffic due to the private companies makes it a fairly attractive proposition.

Thinking time called for to give positioning of the forum best chance for success. Not a delaying tactic - simply a case of finding the best start for the forum.

Thanks Wiggy, some good stuff there, but I couldn't find anything to do with the current batch of launchers, SpaceX, Blue Origin, ULA etc.

It's in there but the place could do with better formatting/organising..try looking in:

Messages - > Space History, subforum -> "Commercial Space - Military Space.."

Thanks Rob, much appreciated..would it be possible to move the thread I originated in Jet blast regarding Glynn Lunney's death to this new location - I feel it would be more appropriate:
