Limits of civilization in the Universe.
Dr. Michio Kaku, the author of Hyperspace and Einstein's Cosmos speaks with Astrobiology Magazine about the limits of civilization in the Universe. Even limited by what we know about the laws of physics, civilizations could eventually control the entire energy output of their planet, star, and even galaxy. Not only that, but there are ways Astronomers could search the skies for evidence of these civilizations.
XCOR Aerospace announced on Friday that it has become the second company to receive a Reusable Launch License from the FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation (the first went to Scaled Composites). This will allow the company to begin testing its suborbital Sphinx vehicle. The license is only for testing - up to 35 flights between no and the end of 2006 - and doesn't permit tourist flights or other commercial applications. Unlike other groups testing suborbital vehicles, XCOR isn't planning to compete for the $10 million X-Prize.
