Private Spaceships

Forbes has a gallery of the private spacecraft currently in development.

Including the Worldview balloon and Bigelow's projects are category errors (balloons can never reach space, and without propulsion Bigelow modules aren't "craft"), but they're still cool so I'll allow it.

The good news is that none of these projects are paper rockets. They're all real hardware with real teams. That's no guarantee they will all succeed, but this commercial activity is a refreshing change from the endless SLS and Orion development being done by NASA recently.
