XLSpace - Michael Carden

XLSpace - Michael Carden 

Michael is manufacturing and selling Hydrogen Peroxide.  It is a non-toxic liquid at room temperature.  It scales up nicely.  The engines can be very simple and reliable.  Ignition is instantaneous, no hard starts.  It is inexpensive in bulk.  Storeable in vehicles for up to a year, and in a storage farm for up to three years.

X-L Background - developed a new concentration method in 1997.  They are co-located with Frontier Astronautics.

For quantities less than on a drum it is about $8 a pound.  On the drum level the price drops to around $5.50 a pound.

He had a great line about "once you get pass bureaucratic issues you are half way to orbit."
