NSS takes great pleasure in announcing that its 2014 Robert A. Heinlein Memorial Award has been won by acclaimed space entrepreneur Elon Musk.  Musk is the Chief Designer and CEO of SpaceX.  In the last decade, SpaceX, under the leadership of Elon Musk, has been moving directly toward accomplishing goals that many of us in NSS think are of utmost importance.  One of these goals is forcing a drastic reduction in launch costs by doing the very hard task, which no one else in the world has been willing and able to tackle:  creating a family of commercially successful and reusable rocket boosters and reusable spacecraft.
