What is a Space Enthusiast (formerly Cynic)?

Thank you, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

Your willingness to upend the orthodoxies of the traditional big aerospace world and the stranglehold they had on access to space has given me hope that we can FINALLY do all the things in space that we’ve talked about for decades in the alt space world.

You have made me an Enthusiast.


Note – i’m still very much inclined to call bullshit where I see it – and there’s plenty of it in the aerospace sector.  So this blog will be equal parts celebration of the awesome and mockery of the insipid. 🙂



The original definition of a Space Cynic (from our archives):

The Space Cynics are a group of people who have banded together to fight the forces of gullibility, boosterism, and nonsense that plague the space community.

We are NOT anti-space. We are anti-Koolaid.
