Sundahl Quoted in SpaceNews Regarding Proposed Safety Guidelines for Human Spaceflight

C|M|LAW Associate Dean Mark Sundahl was quoted in a September 27, 2013, article in SpaceNews, regarding new proposed safety practices for commercial orbital and suborbital human spaceflight companies.  The safety practices have been proposed in response to the recent growth of private companies, such as SpaceX and Virgin Galactic, that will soon be providing human spacelflight services to NASA and the public.  The article quotes Sundahl during a recent FAA teleconference where he commented that “if the intention of the document is to prevent Congress from stepping in to guide the process, I think we need to continue to consider whether the contents of the document are sufficient to do that.”  The entire article can be found here:
