Whether by government or company, to the Moon or Mars or beyond, to establish space stations or planetside bases, we must continue to push forward. Entire worlds await us out there, and we should boldly go where no one has gone before.
I think it would be great if companies could participate in deep space exploration, but that is reserved for NASA itself. It would be an interesting private economic sector and I'd probably participate in it.
It should be the goal. Curiosity cost 2.5 billion dollars, 1.9 was just getting it to its destination. Want to know how much they spend on the war a day
? Two to 3.5 billion.
