L2 is an unprecedented resource that allows you to be on the front line of space flight, ranging from mission-specific documentation to the development process of new vehicles and infrastructure – providing unique information you’ve never had access to.
A significant element of this site’s unique news article content has been sourced via L2 materials, covering the US, European, Russian, Commercial, and global space flight arenas.
L2 is a documentation database, graphics, photos, information, and video – from spending two hours in the cockpit riding on Shuttle during re-entry to behind-the-scenes vids from our team at launches and more.
L2 sections are organic and interactive via the forum structure (each content thread allows members to post questions/comments). In addition, L2 includes space industry members (adhering to their NDAs, of course), providing a ringfenced water cooler on top of the uploaded content.
Content ranges from the very start of the space program to Shuttle (1000s of presentations, such as in-depth Flight Readiness Reviews PDFs) to the new commercial space and deep space exploration era – along with international content, from Russia to Europe.
Utilizing the existing forum format to aid usability and familiarity, the secure L2 areas allow you to search and download the information to your computer easily and enable you to ask questions and interact – with questions usually answered by the many space flight industry members who are already frequent the L2 sections in their spare time.
You don’t need to be an expert to enjoy L2.
How Does It Work?
You gain access to a secure/restricted forum area 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 nine main sections – such as L2 SpaceX, L2 Videos, and L2 Artemis – 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 9,000 GBS in size and over 18 years in the making (and decades via collating ahead of arriving in its home in L2, containing information that ranges from the present to the future and as far back as the start of the space program.
Unlike many space sites, a parent company does not own us, NSF subscription revenue goes back into NSF operations.
This keeps the majority of the site and news free to access – on expensive servers – and plays a significant part in helping NASASpaceflight.com’s present and future stability. Without our loyal L2 support, there would not be a site.
All L2 revenue is ringfenced and used solely on paying the high costs of running such a massive site. Your L2 subscription is technically your way to donate/support NSF, receiving thanks via L2 access.
