I almost want to go back to college

This is so cool:  Embry-Riddle to offer first ever commercial space degree:

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has announced plans to launch the nation's first ever bachelor's degree in Commercial Space Operations.

The announcement was made Wednesday at the 16th Annual FAA Commercial Space Transportation Conference in Washington. The new degree program would be offered at Embry-Riddle's campus in Volusia County. The school said the program will supply the commercial spaceflight industry with skilled graduates in the areas of space policy, operations, regulation and certification, as well as space flight safety, and space program training, management and planning

For a couple months when my son was asked what did he want to be when he grew up the answer was often a spaceman.  Maybe when he goes off to college he'll head for Embry-Riddle.
