Phil and Stephen reflect on the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket, and Starman’s drive to the asteroid belt. What is Elon Musk up to? Is this all just a publicity stunt? Or was that just a publicity stunt that NASA pulled back in July of 1969?
Interesting times lie ahead for both NASA and SpaceX. Is it time NASA got out of the rocket business? Let’s discuss!
Hat-tip to Brian Wang at Next Big Future for his outstanding coverage of this story.
(Blistering analysis. But it’s possible that incompetence and an archaic approach, rather than corruption per se, are behind the massive spending. Also, we’re not convinced that the US government is trying to steal SpaceX IP.)
