This year, for the first time in nine years, American astronauts could launch from Florida’s Space Coast. In the years since the space shuttle program ended in 2011, forever reshaping the U.S. space industry, private companies have stepped in to fill the gap in human spaceflight from U.S. soil.

As NASA prepares to launch its astronauts with private American companies as soon as this spring, News 6 wants to hear from its viewers, listeners and readers.

What do you want to know about spaceflight and planetary exploration in the era of a new space industry? Space exploration is fueled by the need to answer questions about the great unknown. No need to have a background in physics or a degree in engineering, this is open for the space curious to the space obsessed.

News 6 space reporter Emilee Speck will answer your intergalactic questions with help from astronauts, scientists and engineers.
