Thanks for this posting, Richard. An amazing story. A forward-looking article that talks about a potential bright light in the future. It reminds me a bit of the feelings in the 60s and 70s during the Apollo project and lunar landings. Such a nice change from all the inner gloom many of us are feeling while facing down this pandemic. And thanks to Elon Musk for his genius and his perseverance. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

I personally do not like private own space companies. All you need is a person who thinks that they are Hilter who wants to rule the world.

An interesting comment, Pedro. Something perhaps to think about and maybe how to prevent that from happening, without necessarily stifling free enterprise in space endeavours and exploration.

I am not overly concerned about Elon Musk, but beyond that comment I must bite my tongue. :censored:

OK
some people who work for a government run space agency think the private space companies are doing a good job :censored:

Not sure why you quoted me, since I am not fully understanding your point, other than to agree with your comment. If you were assuming my self-censorship was in reference to a potential comment as to which of a public space agency or private space companies could do a better job, then you guessed wrong!!! :oops:

The same thing can be said about aircraft manufacturers -- what's stopping them from building a secret arsenal of bombers and fighter aircraft in preparation for a privately funded coup? I guess the point I'm trying to make is that it's much more lucrative to work WITH the U.S. government than to conspire against it. Of course, it always comes down to trust -- so, as our former great leader Ronald Reagan once said: "Trust, but verify".
