Since spaceflight began, there have been fewer than 5,500 launches into orbit, and only about 300 of those have carried astronauts. These endeavors have always been risky. Indeed, the failure rate for space launches over the past five decades has hovered around 8 percent.

Early aircraft were also subject to frequent accidents, but private industry invested billions in development, and these machines grew steadily safer over time. Without a mass market to drive a similar evolution, space travel has remained exceedingly dangerous. No wonder it still takes a good dollop of “the right stuff” to be an astronaut.

It’s conceivable that one day NASA scientists will be able to hold soil taken from Mars — thanks to an aerospace program based in Butte.

David Micheletti, director of Montana Aerospace Development Association, told The Montana Standard last week that Space Propulsion Group, Inc., is trying to develop a fuel for NASA made from paraffin wax — essentially candle wax — for a rocket that may one day bring Mars soil samples to Earth....

Butte has long known how to bring rocks from the earth; now Butte joins the effort to take them from the sky.

A local aerospace firm is on track to design and build the propulsion component of a space vehicle that will land on Mars and then take off again, and when the rocket rises into the thin Martian atmosphere, it will carry a payload of samples gathered from the red planet’s crust.

“It’s something that is a complete Butte product that could be sitting on the surface of Mars in a few years,” Dr. Brian Evans said
