NSS is in essence a mouthpiece for government, aerospace and military
Have a look at their sponsors, and at Ad Astra (their newsletter)
I have not seen any support from them for private space initiatives,
although they might have, and certainly individual members do. Mostly,
it looks like "business as usual".
