I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Falcon9 or Man In Space!

Civilians have entered the space race!  The successful launch of the Falcon9 rocket with its Dragon capsule carrying a payload for the International Space Station is tremendous.

It looks like the entrepreneurs will lead us because that's where the money is.  I am simply amazed that so many governments don't understand that, especially conservative governments and parties.  I suppose it's because when they think of space they think of Buck Rogers not asteroid mining.  They have no foresight, only ever narrowing tunnel vision.
