If there was ever a better investment it would be in a private space program.
Sir Richard Branson has Virgin
Elon Musk Has SpaceX.
Jeff Bezos with Blue Origin.
Jim Cantrell at Vector-Launch
Bigelow with Bigelow aerospace.
I find it curious that names like Bill Gates or
even the obvious ones Boeing,
Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman?
where are these guys? One thing the above list proves,,, Private investment
builds better technology. The builder gets to benifit from his innovations.
