1 min read

Federal aviation administration (FAA)The Federal Aviation Administration has released a report on safety best practices for commercial human space flight missions based on information from existing government and industry guidelines, as well as consultations.

FAA said Sept. 16 that the “Recommended Practices for Human Space Flight Occupant Safety” document aims to help facilitate the development of industry-consensus standards and guide future government regulations.

The recommended practices focus on safety objectives rather than the design and operations as the FAA aims to foster innovation and also manage risk, the agency said.
