Astrotech Congratulates Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) on its Successful Mission to the International Space Station
AUSTIN, Texas, June 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Astrotech Corporation, (Nasdaq:ASTC - News) and its Astrotech Space Operations subsidiary congratulate Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) and its CEO Elon Musk on the successful mission to the International Space Station (ISS).
"We congratulate SpaceX and its employees on this historic achievement for the commercial space industry. This is one of the greatest accomplishments of this century. This triumph shows the strength of excellent entrepreneurial vision, leadership, innovation and execution. Successfully designing and building a spacecraft that has now docked and returned from the ISS is one of the most complex engineering challenges of our age and doing it on such a small budget should stand as proof that the private sector can do much more if given the opportunity. We firmly believe this milestone marks the beginning of a new era of commercial activities in lower earth orbit and beyond, and
Astrotech is excited about supporting SpaceX and its satellite customers in the years ahead" stated Thomas B. Pickens, III, Astrotech's Chief Executive Officer.
