Los Angeles Times: On the 40-year anniversary of the last manned moon mission, former NASA officials and investors have launched a new enterprise in commercial space travel called Golden Spike.
At an announcement in Washington on Thursday, former Apollo flight director Gerry Griffin and former NASA science chief Alan Stern, the chairman of the board and chief executive of the new company, outlined their ambitious plans. Using existing rockets and "emerging commercial-crew spacecraft" -- a la SpaceX -- the outfit hopes to operate two-person lunar missions starting at a cost of $1.4 billion by the end of the decade. in a press release, Golden Spike said that the company was already working with aerospace companies to begin designing a lunar lander, lunar space suits and surface experiment packages that might be put to use by future moon walkers. The company will also sponsor a 2013 conference on potential lunar science opportunities its missions might pursue.

Market of Choice is on a tear. In 2012 the 35-year-old Eugene-based grocery chain opened a central kitchen/distribution center in its hometown. The market opened its third Portland store in the Cedar Mill neighborhood this year; another outpost in Bend broke ground in March. A fourth Portland location is slated for the inner southeast “LOCA” development, a mixed-use project featuring condos and retail. Revenues in 2014 were $175 million, a double-digit increase over 2013. CEO Rick Wright discusses growth, market trends and how he keeps new “foodie” grocery clerks happy.
