The more that Amazon.com is supported the more that Jeff Bezos will be able to fund his privateering venture into space.


A bullfrog with a light in its belly is nothing more than a glutton looking to shine otherwise.

Another very keen commercial enterprise as either Cygnus succesfully launched. The next milestone is in 17 also by such a company with the dreamchaser.

The more private organizations that go after this, the quicker it's going to happen... and the cheaper it'll become.

 Space X has taken over the launch pad used to launch the first and last shuttles missions from. This is great because Space X will now be able to launch larger space craft into space based on privateering. I think the space race is actually going to being taking off more than ever now because of the larger launch facilities.


Space X actually beat out Blue Origin but thats okay I think Jeff Bezos will help fund the new privateering space sport with proceeds from Amazon.com.


Just because you didn't win the bid on the launch port doesn't mean you have to be sore. It just means Jeff Bezos can fund the launch pad without having to worry about all of the problems Space X will have to worry about.

The space race is no longer between governments, it between private businesses. Who is going to regulate this madness?


Blalock & Nimoy were the best two actors in the Star Trek universe. Go Vulcans!

The over-regulation is the madness.  That's what has kept us out of space for so long.
