Answering space queries at Quora

John Kavanagh points me the website Quora, which is an information site that involves open participation like Wikipedia but “has a more narrow focus: someone posts a question and then an ‘expert’ posts an answer, subject to voting and review for popular approval”.

John hopes that people knowledgeable about commercial spaceflight, such as Space Transport News readers, will participate in the answering of space related questions.

For example, John answered the question, What spacecraft will replace the Space Shuttle? – http://www.quora.com/What-spacecraft-will-replace-the-Space-Shuttle

He points to other examples of questions that need answering:
