Hi John. It's great to see you here!
Can i ask why the gov is encouraging the privatization of space exploration with all that secret stuff up there? Do they plan to tell us about it before we find it - or don't they expect us to ever get that far?
They are not encouraging any private space ventures. Ask Bob Bigelow who has to use russian rockets to get his stuff up there.
All space shuttle flights will terminate between 2010 and 2012. NASA will then maneuver to keep any other public launching unlikely at best.Another 10 years and we'll be seeing huge "Pepsi" banners flashing down on us from orbit. How does NASA plan to keep this stuff a secret?
I would guess that any rockets launched after that time frame will be from Ronald Reagan BMDTS, Australia or China.
Even Bush's supposed moon mission is being diverted to L1 (Lagrange Point 1).
What a joke.
