Private 'Rocketeers' reach for space -- science writer in Canada to explain

In the second space age, human spaceflight may no longer be the domain of governments. Dream-chasing entrepreneurs and clever engineers are aggressively blazing new trails into the heavens and preparing the world for an era of space tourism, ultra fast point-to-point earth travel and even orbiting hotels.

On Wednesday, February 6th, at 7:00 pm, Perimeter Institute will host science journalist and author Michael Belfiore in a sold-out public lecture. Belfiore will provide insights from his recent book Rocketeers: How A Visionary Band of Business Leaders, Engineers, and Pilots Is Boldly Privatizing Space.

Having gained inside access into the top private space programs, Belfiore will share his many insights on the history-making flights, the failures and fatalities, as well as the enduring passion and dreams of the real estate tycoons, dot-com billionaires, a video game programmer and other business mavericks for whom the sky is no longer the limit. They are fueling the highest-flying private rockets ever built, testing vertical dragsters, and preparing to launch an inflatable space station with the mock-up already in earth orbit. Can your ticket to ride be that far behind"
