    Governments transcend generations is something we often overlook in how it should act versus a companies bottom line.

    Lovely video

      Governments do not have longer time horizons. In contrary – they last about 4-5 years and frequently change their direction by 180 degrees.

        The moon is a LOT smaller than the Earth. The whole solar system we live in is in a very finely turned balance of mass vs speed related physical relationships. I would WARN PEOPLE VERY LOUDLY about going to the other bodies floating in our solar system and INADVERTENTLY FUCKING ABOUT with their mass by either mining or building too much on their surfaces, or underneath, because once orbits start to change you will also change the orbits of those around them - INCLUDING OURS!!! Even fucking around with the moon was could cause simple problems with our tides and that may have HUGE EFFECTS ON THE SEA LIFE (their habits and reproductive cycles, etc.) within our oceans, and without sealife in our oceans, we are FUCKED !!! - Not mention our orbit with the Sun. SURE GO INTERSTELLAR and find some other system to fuck up, but let's NOT fuck up our own!!! I know that that warning may sounds like and over reaction, BUT WE CAN'T AFFORD TO GET THIS WRONG !!!

          Not gonna lie, comparing people wanting poverty, disease, abuse, and the other issues on earth to be addressed before space travel to people wanting to keep a caveman from exploring that cool mountain over there cus they need to deal with cave problems is incredibly insensitive and very much indicative of a person who needs to go back and do some more PR training to learn how to appear to be less of an uncaring jerk.

              of course if they link UPWARDS first rather than to ground stations, they have a much wider command/download field of view to the satellites before LOS

                            I wrote a 19 page paper in college about a very similar topic! How govt. and private companies can and are working together to make space profitable. It felt like revisiting a lot of old research I had done, and it was cool to hear you come to the same conclusions. It’ll be interesting to see how the final frontier develops over the course of our lifetimes

                                Commericalised space travel will potentially see a huge boom if/when firms can find means to mine lunar materials, or even minerals from asteroids. When that happens, space travel will become truly *huge*.

                                    humans to mars.. habitats or social interaction isnt even nearly there in the west. Those habitats had lots of leaks and people were ready to kill one another in a few weeks being locked up like that. Soviets figured at least out the social part, you cannot have hierarchies in tiny 6 person survival tribes. No one can be the boss or go around boasting higher status. Absolute equality is a must.
                                    Which seems pretty impossible for americans to even contemplate.

                                            I think some of the people who feel that space exploration will solve many of our problems on this planet sometimes forget that the greed, corruption, violence and destruction, quest for power, and the exploitation of others, etc...all these (and more) will continue, even if we could explore and settle the stars and deep space. Unfortunately, those common human traits and behaviors will always follow us no matter where we go, unless we can find a way to permanently change them. I'm all for space exploration and the advancement of knowledge, science, and technology in a good way (and I don't mean to sound dark) but don't expect space exploration to automatically create a better world and change natural human behavior and tendencies. The people in control of this world are currently destroying our own (increasingly dystopian) world with almost no consideration to the future, because of the aforementioned traits what reason is there to think that any of this would ever change for the better, even if we did find a fully habitable and beautiful utopia on another world? Knowing our overall human nature and past history, as long as those same type people were in control, we'd probably just try to find a way to eliminate the existing population on a new world or exploit them too, and sooner or later, their world would end up just like ours. Greed and power are the two largest contributing factors to all our negative human traits, and until we can find a way to eliminate them, it's hard to imagine any real, positive change, on this or any other world. But it is a wonderful pipe dream, to imagine that all people everywhere, could somehow come together in peace, for a greater and common good.

                                                No one is saying that we have to fix the problems on earth before we go to space! What they are4r saying is that we should not be spending trillion of dollars for the benefit of the few while government revenue reductions and increased spending for the MIC has got the US to over $22 trillion in debt. This is not a coincidence , this is engineered as indicated by the last two budgets of the current administration, and it's going to get much worse!
                                                SpaceX has revealed just how overpriced the MIC is, and the MIC gets away with it because NASA is legally obligated to contract with the MIC! Are you connecting the dots yet? It's all about the money, where it comes from, and who gets it and who investing in what and how much politics weight they have! Left to the MIC, the US would be sending up two, three or maybe for austronsauts for the next hundred years, because there is so much money to be made that way! SpaceX will free NASA from the MIC, like the ULA !

                                                          how about working 4 or 3 days a week instead of not knowing what to do with all the labor available and shooting it into space where no man can live and no life grow?

From my perspective the most interesting part is that people want to hear bad news (and it's often enough bad news) and are willing to pay for it. If you had asked me ten years ago if one could make money this way, I would have shaken my head in disbelief.

You can get this kind of advice from a gazillion people. The break one needs to get the "gig" are the initial clients, the rest is word of mouth and repeat business. I am not even advertising because it wouldn't help, every client knows me personally from past business transactions. I think that's a fairly generic rule for most businesses... it's much easier to break in and to survive with an established customer base.

If anything, I've been bemoaning how governments seem unable to do anything with a pay-off further away than one administration (between four and ten years in most countries AFAIK). I guess I've just been using the worst-case scenario of highly-polarized, partisan, 2-party governments symptomatic of end-stage first-past-the-post electoral systems that automatically cancel "the other guys"'s projects whenever they take power and refuse to institute programs that might have delayed positive impacts during the competition's administration.
                                                                      I guess under better political circumstances, a program could survive through multiple administrations, potentially even longer than a shareholder's lifetime. Thanks for reducing the bleakness of my outlook somewhat!

Technology and economy is always focussed on beyond the mountain because the new is for the few and there is high profit in it. The many are always the poor and so there is only profit in low margin mass supply of x and once they have it the suppliers are undercut by new tech with thier new x. Focussing beyond the moutain means the many will always be kept poor to be the bottom of the market chain, the base the high tech innovators need to stay poor to support thier exploration. Benefits trickling down to all is as much a myth as classical liberal trickle down economics. As usual it is the investment of public money from the many for the supposed return in the future in taxes, except, how much tax does Amazon pay? Thats correct, they avoid it because its possible to avoid it, the return in taxes is illusory. The poor masses fund the adventurism of high tech and then its handed to privateers to profit from public investment for their next adventure, and the problems at home like poverty are never the focus.

Oh, let's go to some planet or moon, and bring back diamonds or gold, or something we want. Oh, let's build a hotel in space, and make reservations for couples, and families, and put them in Oxygen & radiation suits, and fly them into space for a week in our space hotel, so they can bring their cameras, and take pictures of our Earth & Sun, & experience floating around in no gravity. Uh oh, Jenny has a nut allergy, and she's swelling up. We better bring her back home. Sorry trip cut
