Space1 Ground Safety

Space1 is all about safe space, safety, and making space travel safe for human astronauts and space tourism. Space1 has also focused efforts on making down-to-Earth safe space.

— space safety is no accident⠀—

Safe space is on everyone's mind from the beginning of the space program in the 1950s. However, it takes new innovation to bring dreams into reality.

People want safe space travel. Fewer people consider ground safety. Work continues at Space1 using a method of ground testing safety assurance. The new GTSA methods assure a good safety record for materials handling and storage, rocket and engine testing, and management of the launch and related factors such as weather dynamics.

Safety adds up whether on the ground or in the air. The latest addition to our flight safety management program FSMP is a special safety observatory that can observe, monitor, and assess the atmospheric "seeing cell" in the determination of ground and flight conditions.

Creating and maintaining safety requires an important understanding of varied conditions and a balance of factors.
