L2 – The Premier Space Subscription Service
L2 is an unprecedented resource that gives you the opportunity to be on the front-line of space flight, ranging from mission specific documentation, through to following the development process of new vehicles and infrastructure – providing information you’ve never had access to before.
A large element of the unique news article content on this site has been sourced via L2 materials.
Without breaking ITAR or Export Control laws – as no such information exists on this site – L2 is like nothing you’ve seen anywhere else on the internet, covering the US, European, Russian, Commercial and global space flight arenas.

Nothing in L2 is available elsewhere, not on any public site or another subscription service. The Open Forum covers all the public resources.
L2 is a database of documentation, graphics, photos, information and video, L2 sections are organic and interactive. L2 is full of space industry members, providing a ringfenced water cooler on top of the uploaded content.
L2 is the best value for money you could ever spend on a subscription based space flight resource. Our 95 percent L2 member resub rate over the past five years is testament to that.

Utilizing the existing forum format to aid usability and familiarity, the secure L2 areas allow you to easily search and download the information to your own computer and enables you to ask questions and interact – with questions usually answered by the many space flight industry members who already frequent the L2 sections in their spare time.
How Does It Work?
You gain access to a secure/restricted area of the site where everything is published, browsing through titled ‘threads’ where documentation – in the form of downloadable pdfs, photos, images, videos etc. – information, and discussion is uploaded. What you download, you keep, even after your subscription ends.
There are eleven main sections – such as L2 SpaceX, L2 Videos and L2 SLS – with several hundred additional specific section areas – such as L2 EVA, accessed via the L2 tag cloud, allowing for a menu of content from mission specific to vehicle specific and even hardware specific.
The entire database is over 7,000 gbs in size and over nine years is the making – containing information that ranges from the present, to the future, and as far back as the start of the space program.

Your subscription warrants your use of our servers for unlimited downloading, in turn providing the site with revenue from L2 subscriptions to be used to improve the site and pay for the servers (four figures per month cost).
This keeps the majority of the site and news as free to access, and plays a major part in helping NASASpaceflight.com’s present and future stability.

All L2 revenue ringfenced and used solely on paying the large costs of hosting such a massive site. Nobody takes a salary from NSF, we all have ‘day jobs’.
This site is not owned by a parent company, we grow via our strong and proactive community. Your L2 subscription is technically your way to donate/support NSF, in turn receiving thanks via L2 access.
