    already plans in place looking to privatize the ISS in the next 5-10 years. With initiatory ventures of concepts such as reusable rockets; economical nanosatellites easily configurable to private usage; as well as emerging push in travel/ tourism, I see the private sector dominating the LEO field of space so NASA and Co. can focus on beyond the hill sphere.

    They never returned to the moon after the last manned expedition in 1972, because they were warned to NOT come back... they created space stations, they've been trying to reach Mars but "no sir, not the moon, we've been warned".. unfortunately the people in charge at NASA in 1972 have already passed or they are no longer active so these new generation in their gigantic ego are thinking they could come back to the moon thinking "we'll show them how us earthlings have developed in 40 years"... I dont see this new mentality going in any productive direction

    I hope this comes to pass in my lifetime. It's sickening how NASA has been completely gutted.

    Space travel seems like a collosal waste of money.

    I'd rather spend the $100 billion on NASA then war in the middle east.

    Unless I was one of the twenty, then it would take 25 of us. I have debt.

    Do you understand the benfits of investing in space? No thats because you arent smart enough or have an open mind enough to understand that.


    When you invest in space technology, everything else starts to advance a lot quicker. Medical science, computers, building technology, everything. Lets not forget the endless amount of mine-able asteroids and the endless possibliys of having people leave earth to lessing the stress on the planet.

    That's the third time you've insulted me without saying anything of substance. I would tell you to stop projecting and converse, but it's obvious you have nothing to say.

    Computers get smaller and more advanced when you go into space, medical science gets more advanced to help people who experience life in low grav and other worlds, because who knows what kind of sickness an diseases are out there there. Also when you get people off world, less shit more space and the planet can go about fixing herself. Everything has to get smaller when you launch it to save weight, and cost. Hell if we built a space elevator, it would be easier to bring rare metals, and rare material back down to earth.
