Proposed Law Blocks Export Of America's Least Threatening Gun

It would also outlaw hosting design files for 3D printed weapons

Designed by Defense Distributed, the 3D printed Liberator pistol is both a revolutionary concept and a profoundly mediocre gun. The Liberator is the world's first successful 3D printed gun, capable of firing a single bullet, with only a modest risk of exploding in the hand of the shooter. Shortly after it's creation, the State Department moved to block the group sharing the file online. Now, a proposed rule change to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations could keep all files for 3D printed guns offline.

The change in question is to the definition of "technical data," and it is, unsurprisingly, quite a technical paragraph. From the proposed rules:

Paragraph (a)(1) also sets forth a broader range of examples of formats that ''technical data'' may take, such as diagrams, models, formulae, tables, engineering designs and specifications, computer-aided design files, manuals or documentation, or electronic media, that may constitute ''technical data.'' Additionally, the revised definition includes certain conforming changes intended to reflect the revised and newly added defined terms

We're building rockets that will launch the small satellite revolution

While every other gadget in our lives has gotten smaller, lighter, and cheaper, satellite technology has somehow gotten bigger, heavier, and more expensive since the days of Sputnik and Explorer I. But now, thanks to the recent advances in Cubesats and microsatellites, commercial satellite start-ups, universities, schools, and even IndieGoGo campaigns can put their own satellites into space. But small satellites need small satellite launch vehicles—after all, small satellites cannot truly change the world without cost-effective, frequent rides to space!

Current small and microsatellites reached space mostly by "hitchhiking" — catching a ride on someone else's big, expensive rocket. But hitchhiking to space has real drawbacks: just like hitchhiking here on Earth, when you leave and where you get dropped off aren't your decisions to make, and the driver probably has strict rules about what you can and can't do in the vehicle. If you are just trying to prove that your satellite works in space, those restrictions may be fine, but if you are trying to build a business or accomplish a mission, you need your own ride, at the right price.

The makers, builders, and satellite entrepreneurs have done their part. It's time for the rockets to do theirs. It's time for LauncherOne.

At Virgin Galactic, we are leveraging our work building our human spaceflight program and our team's extensive background in low-cost launch systems to create LauncherOne, an orbital launch vehicle dedicated to the small satellite market. By using much of the same infrastructure originally that supports SpaceShipTwo — in particular WhiteKnightTwo, our unique, high-performance mothership — we can keep prices low while accommodating customer needs for launch availability and flexibility.

We're hard at work finalizing the design for LauncherOne and testing its key components. LauncherOne will be a two-stage rocket, built using advanced composite structures, and powered by our new family of LOX/RP-1 liquid rocket engines. Each LauncherOne mission will be capable of delivering as much as 225 kilograms (500 pounds) to a low inclination Low Earth Orbit or 120 kilograms (265 pounds) to a high-altitude Sun-Synchronous Orbit, for a price of less than $10M. The customers we've already announced plan to use LauncherOne to provide broadband internet to billions of people who are currently without internet access, take pictures of the Earth for humanitarian causes, to collect more accurate weather measurements, to hunt for asteroids that could represent threats and opportunities to our home planet, and to launch many other types of satellites. We're convinced that the types of missions are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

We will provide more details of LauncherOne as we develop the vehicle. Follow these links to learn more about the concept of operations and the performance and specifications of LauncherOne.
