I and many others like to criticize the government for their bureaucracy and expense when doing things. However, I think in the case of building rockets and sending them to space the government is looking better all the time. When NASA was in control the failure rate was lower. Just last week another privately built rocket blew up at Cape Canaveral. The cost by NASA to build these rockets was higher but that extra expense seems to have paid off in safety. For example, maybe the private company gets it correct 9 times out of 10 but maybe NASA gets it correct 99 out of 100 and in this case that can make a big difference.

I watched, live, a rocket take off from Cape Canaveral yesterday afternoon. A camera was on the outside of the rocket as it successfully went into space, on its way to an asteroid. I was thinking of you Wishcast hater because the camera showed a small part of a curved earth in the background. I believe what I saw. Congratulations to NASA for a successful launch.

How anyone could actually believe that the earth is flat is mind numbing to me.

Bottom line rules...why spend taxpayer money when the private sector can fund it? If a rocket explodes or does not work as expected, its not the taxpayers responsibility, its SpaceX's, their shareholders and owners.

And we all know NASA is a fraud anyway...... :)

I don't mind funding something like NASA. Sometimes there are things that money can't buy. When we landed on the moon there was not enough money in the world that could have brought our country together like that or made it gleam with pride over such an accomplishment. However, if companys like Space X can fund it and do as good a job, then let them go ahead. As of now we have taken a step back and it is unfortunate that our space program has been pushed to the back burner.

Agree on the Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo programs, even the space shuttle. But now, I am question what we get from it.
