I think that this is the best thing for space exploration. Finally, the space community will open up and I think this will start to propell us into the future quicker....

Wow, this is great. Thanks for sharing! I'm glad NASA isn't stooping to private funding themselves...

But this is great for the space community as a whole, as it needs all the stimulation it can get...

I think it looks better with the logos. It's like a race car: When it has no advertisements it looks bad but when it does both sides have a win-win deal

If only NASA would stoop to private funding they might actually remain a Relevent space enterprise in the comming Commercial Space Industry. But as I see it the private sector will take over primary operations in Sub-Orbit then eventually Orbit shortly after the X-Prize(shortly being in decades not years). NASA should file for an Initial Public Offering...or maybe not because no self-respecting investor would sink money into the POC that Nasa has become..............

Hey, I love the Adverts... It does actually look much more cool that way.

I think that NASA will not have to change it`s strategy in the future to stay viable. Once the companies get moving and the funding and profits start coming in, then they will expand exponentially, but, they will of course be for profit. I think that NASA will always be around for things that are purely scientific and will not make money. I could imagine companies sending rovers to mars to maybe the so-called pyramids hoping to make money off of them or to the moon to show pics of the apollo stuff left on their and what it looks like today (of course for sale), but, I could not imagine them spending too much money to see if there was once water on mars, unless it somehow tied in with profits.

I personally am just looking forward to a week vacation in low orbit.
