NASA: Reaching for New Heights
At NASA, we’ve been a little busy: landing on Mars, developing new human spacecraft, going to the space station, working with commercial partners, observing the Earth and the Sun, exploring our solar system and understanding our universe. And that’s not even everything.

But it couldnt really be privately funded. If you think about it almost all space undertakings are financial dead ends. How could a company make back several billions of dollars that NASA had spent on the moon landing? sponsors? hardly. Aside from that there are only really satellitesthey would invest in because they could be profitable, but satellites wouldnt be pushing the boundaries beyond our planets at all. I think that government funding is the only way it could ever get done.
Private industry would NOT have made this much progress because of the risk and rate of return.
Anyone can be quiet certain and assured that, if id hadn't been for the exquisite, broad, enviously profound & ambitiously strong dedication of ALL the NASA Coworkers, ALL the indeed hard working Technical Engineers and highly skilled Personell of the total NASA compound, we hadn't ever reached the moon and not a single Human foot would have yet been trying the walkability of the grained surface of the moon. We indeed have NASA to THANK for so infinitely, endlessly much!

true, but you can expect privatization as the technology continues to progress. especially in the areas where retrieving resources is possible, I've actually already heard of an American mining company looking into mining nearby asteroids. as it stands, it will be a free for all
The future is closer than you think!!!
all the countries in the world should team up on giving space organisations infinite money.. think about the big picture, what humans as a race could accomplish if it weren't for this material limitation we call money…
money well spent… it's far better then funding wars.
America leads the way.
I want to be a superstar and be the one of them in NASA.
I wish they knew the tecnology to freeze/prepare the human body…so I could go to Mars in the future. Lol!
Absolutely incredible! If Newt Gingrich had been elected, the moon colonisation program would have been underway already
