    privatization of space is the new trend.

    word is even NASA is going to ditch Orion and give DragonX the funding.

    Not to mention talks about privatizing the ISS.

    The first people on Mars will be corporate funded personnel

    What resources does the moon have? I read on space.com that the objectives are testing out the performance of the spacecraft, winning the 30 million Google prize, and also to help exploit resources on the moon.

    tons of Helium3 (something we are running out of on earth)

    and REM 's used for modern communication devices

    Thorium - for potentially cleaner and safer energy

    What a time to be alive.

    Barely 100 years ago we couldn't even fly and now private companies are trying to get to the moon.

    Frankly I think it is a national embarrassment that we need to pay the Russians to get to space. Anything that gets us back into space exploration the better.

    I bet liberals will ruin this project if they find out there aren't Womyn on the mission.

    why? Foreigners run the market on taxis services.

    Soyuz is cheap and only has to go 400 miles
