More Manned Spaceflight

Another article on manned space flight, which suggests that we should leave human exploration of space to the millionaires (e.g. Steve Fosset, the round-the-world balloon guy).

Interesting, but I’m afraid that one possible result would be Space Feudalism…

    I’d love to see this, but I don’t see it happening as long as the government keeps showing a willingness to foot the bill.

    Of course, if the government foots the bill then America gets to control the early colonies. If private industry foots the bill,then we have a reinactment of what happened to the Chinese and Irish when they hired on to build railroads.

    I think a private / government partnership would work best and has a better chance of happening.
