Space news and content company SPACE.com is closing an office and laying off several people, according to various reports this week. The New York-based company plans to close its Washington, DC office, relying instead on recent acquisition Space News, headquartered in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington. The company is also laying off a small number of people, although the exact number is unclear: VentureWire, an online news service that covers the Internet and related industries, reported that nine would be laid off, while the New York Post claimed 12 were receiving pink slips. NASA Watch, which reported on the office closing earlier this week, said that among those leaving would be Alan Ladwig, a former NASA official who served as the company's vice president for Washington operations, as well as Pasadena correspondent Andrew Bridges.
