CHICAGO and LONDON, Ontario, May 16 /PRNewswire/ — Two companies at the forefront of the ‘race to space’ have announced they are joining forces to complete and fly a spacecraft capable of carrying passengers into suborbital space. Canadian Arrow has announced that it is partnering with an American businessman, Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria, to form a new Canadian corporation called PLANETSPACE.
