SPACE: Golden Spike Co. begins a crowdfunding campaign for its lunar launch. “Boulder-based Golden Spike Co., a privately funded enterprise aiming to send people to the moon by 2020, is going where few aerospace companies have dared to go — to the masses for money through an online crowdfunding campaign. The goal is to raise $240,000 — or a dollar for each mile from Earth to the moon. The campaign is one of several funding sources that Golden Spike is pursuing but is meant to fulfill purposes beyond money.”
