The government won`t fund NASA but, you watch, the minute an entrepeneur finds lil green men they wil be all over it like a rash.

They have bases on the moon. And a space fleet. Allegedly.

What a load of tripe. And there`s no business on this planet that has the expendable capital to build a spaceflight infrastructure. Even *IF* a business could get all of NASA or some other country like Russia`s information on equipment, logistics and such, they would go broke merely attempting to get one long-term spacecraft launched and viable.

@Xh8FYHnG: I disagree. MASSIVE undertakings usually need government support to succeed, with examples being the creation of the interstate highway system and most high-speed rail systems in Europe. At some point, space exploration will fall over to free enterprise, and rightly so, but I don`t think we`re anywhere *near* that point yet.

Unfortunately, I think there`s a good chance that the first settlement on Mars will be Chinese, and not American.

She has a very annoying voice and is probably trying too hard because she`s a newbie--but she speaks the truth. The government has no business running a space program in the first place, except for defense purposes. Collectives do not have purposes, individuals do. With economic incentives, progress will happen in this new frontier as it has in others.

When did Reason.tv become MTV?

Can`t we handle serious topics without making it "hip?"

What The? She obviously hasn`t been paying attention for the last 30 years or so. Who the hell wrote that crap for her to read poorly?

I`m sorry honey but nobody`s going to Mars "in style" anytime soon.

I found that highly disrespectful to the millions of people who toiled to create the technology that allowed man to explore space not to mention those who gave their lives in the cause.

Wow that reporter is a b*tch. The space program paved the way for lots of new technology and research.
