If anyone is going to get us into space it will be private enterprise and good on them
If that is what it takes to get manned flights past the idea of orbit then I am all for it, for too long we have sent robots in place of where we
ought to be. There is ways and means of travelling through space and our governments have all but given up on this prospect.
The problem at the end of the day though is money. The only people who can beat that problem is money makers and thats a problem in itself.
How will this pay for itself? Prospecting?
Anyways I'm all for it if it gets us in space voyaging again
Just to add like many have mentioned about payload that will depend on how we get into space, our atmosphere is a problem but it could be our friend
too, I'm sure if their is a consortium of businessmen they will have ideas for all the in's and out's of the ideas of space travel and will of thought
thoroughly about this problem. Ideally they would have a space production station, It's not ideal bringing everything back so keep it up there till
We could bring cargo down on gliders we know our atmosphere well enough to do this and that's just an idea of the top of my head, the main problem is
viable method up into space.... something cheap and re-usable something the private sector is getting closer too.
scale up the U2 plane would be the plan, something that can get into orbit.Build production station and then use the station to create vessels to be
launched at the moon or drop cargo at Earth. simple in the long run
