The Lifeboat Foundation and ten other organizations, including the National Space Society and the Space Frontier Foundation, have launched a new strategic alliance for space development and commerce named the Alliance for Space Development (ASD).
 
Perhaps the most ambitious part of the ASD agenda is a proposed “Cheap Access to Space Act” that would offer $3.5 billion in government prizes for the development of reusable launch vehicles. Those prizes include, in a draft version of the bill provided by ASD, $1 billion to the first fully reusable vehicle that can place at least one metric ton into orbit and fly again a week later.
