Unveils Revamped Website Unveils Revamped Website

Today marks the launch of our revamped website.  The event should be seamless, but if you encounter any difficulties, please let us know at or


Based on the many positive comments we’ve received over the past two years, we’ve kept the same look and feel.  Our web address is the same and if you are getting our RSS feed nothing should change.   You will still be able to access all the free content to which you are accustomed — our objective, non-partisan reporting and analysis; handy fact sheets, hearing and meeting summaries; lists of GAO, NRC and other reports of interest; and a listing of events of interest to the space policy community.


  • SHARE YOUR VIEWS:  You can now post comments using Disqus.   We encourage debate, but ask that everyone keep his or her  remarks professional and dignified.   Passion is OK, vitriol – no.  As we state at the bottom of the Disqus comment box, has the right (but not the obligation) to monitor comments and to remove any materials it deems inappropriate.
  • SIGN UP FOR A DAILY EMAIL NOTIFICATION:  As requested, you can now sign up for daily emails to keep apprised of new stories that we’ve posted.  In the blue bar at the top of our home page, click the envelope icon and enter your email address.   We don’t do anything with your email address; this service is provided automatically through Feedburner.
  • SEARCH MORE EASILY:   Our search box is in the same place (top right), but the search engine recognizes longer strings of characters, making searching much easier. 
  • VIEW EVENTS OF INTEREST AS A LIST:   We’ve replaced the calendar on our home page with a list of upcoming events, but if you liked the calendar format, you can still see one by clicking on the “full calendar with filters” link at the bottom of the list.
  • SHARE USING EMAIL, SOCIAL MEDIA AND OTHER TOOLS:  You can now easily share our stories with others via Twitter, Facebook and other e-tools.  We’ve also made it easier for you to follow us on Twitter or Facebook by using the now-familiar icons on the top right of the home page.    If you don’t use Twitter yourself, you can see what we are tweeting and retweeting right there on our home page.  Twitter is a terrific news feed and we find lots of interesting tweets by others to retweet and bring to your attention, so please check our “Twitter widget” throughout the day.
  • ADVERTISE ON SPACEPOLICYONLINE.COM:   Contact us at for details. 


Soon we will be offering premium reports for purchase on a per-report basis or by subscription.  Building on the tradition of Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports that founder and editor Marcia Smith wrote for more than three decades, our premium reports will provide objective and non-partisan information and analysis about commercial, military and civil space policy and programs in the United States and around the world.  Stay tuned for details!

We’re excited about the new site and hope you are, too.   With best wishes to you and yours for happy holidays and a sparkling New Year!

Marcia Smith and Laura Delgado
