AUDIO (:50) -- TEXAS BLAST OFF ~ Shara Fryer

Clear skies and lots of space in South and West Texas….and with the mindset and tech to reach into space….any surprise that it is happening from here in the Lone Star State?

Blue Origin…the Jeff Bezos company that’s promising space tourism…had another successful launch in West Texas…..of a potential NASA payload into sub orbital flight. We’ve posted the link to the Texas blast off. The booster and the capsule made successful return….and will be reused. So while federal NASA workers are largely furloughed with the partial government shutdown, the business of space is soaring….especially in Texas. In Brownsville, Space X (Elon Musk) is expanding in a big way….not just with launch pad, but moving headquarters too….from California.

Houston…we have some Texas competition.
