It's thanks to them (and your tax money) that the technology exists today to make rocket launching something that the private sector can do. Get real
people. Musk is not the messiah.
Nasa is still working with 50 yr old tech, look at their launch platforms, look at their vehicle locomotion for space, hell look at their space suits
the astronauts wear. what the hell are you on about?
They also told Elon he couldnt do what he did with his most recent rockets, and it only took him how many years?
Nasa has been pumped full of money over the last 60 years and has failed to do what Musk and his engineers have done in 10.
Youre ire should lay at NASAS feet, and their piddling away of funds and failure to innovate anymore.
The private sector will ALWAYS and has ALWAYS done it better, thats why the gov consistently contracts THEM to get done what they need.
You should probably do your research before going all aggro.
