L2 is an unprecedented resource that provides 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 the 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.

No unique content 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 includes space industry members (adhering to their NDAs, of course), 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 90 percent L2 member resub rate over the past five years is a testament to that.
Content ranges from the very start of the space program, through to Shuttle (1000s of presentations, such as in-depth Flight Readiness Reviews), through to the new era of commercial space and deep space exploration – 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 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.
You don’t need to be an expert to enjoy L2.
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 8,000 GBS in size and over 12 years is the making (and decades via collating ahead of arriving in its home in L2 – such as the scanned documents donated from a former NASA manager from the start of the Shuttle program) – 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 in the operation of the site.
This keeps the majority of the site and news as free to access – on expensive servers – and plays a major part in helping NASASpaceflight.com’s present and future stability. Without our loyal L2 support, there would not be a site.
All L2 revenue ringfenced and used solely on paying the large costs of running such a massive site.
Your L2 subscription is technically your way to donate/support NSF, in turn receiving thanks via L2 access.
