Administration, F. A. (n.d.). What Is Commercial Space Transportation Why Is It Important. Retrieved from

Excerpt: How are we able to enjoy live television and radio broadcasts from anywhere in the world? Make international telephone calls? Manage natural resource use? Respond to emergencies and disasters? Satellite technology is the short answer. But how do satellites get to space? This is the function of commercial space transportation. Space transportation is the movement of, or means of moving objects to, from, or in space. You are probably familiar with at least one form of space transportation: the Space Shuttle. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), a U.S. government agency, owns the Space Shuttle and uses it to take astronauts into space.
