space race for the moon is now under way. it says^^^ 30 mill but also 20 mill ...
space race for the moon is now under way. it says^^^ 30 mill but also 20 mill later on down i dont no which. but it sounds like someone wants to get a jump start for a company to stay on the moon. there is no other reason for this to be going on than to try and get a company to think well i'll win the 20-30 mill and set a base there and start a lunar station. the dead line is 2015 3 years to get a rocket up and on the moon. it wouldnt be a surprise if someone came out tomorrow stating they had a rocket ready to launch and stay on the moon for some time. i think if the billioniars saw this space fight going down they would put allot of cash down to buy a space company and fund it off their wealth. below is a link for some info on mining astroids which will help with water in space and metals( hopefully gold goes down) and their financial backers for that project? hmmm microsoft exect and o yeah google ceo
theres also a class you can take to learn to make space hotels

its been captured!!! sweet the next step in space exploration. get ready folks every good thing that happens will bring out other companies to state what ever about going into space.
base planed by Bigelow Aerospace , they have 2 shuttles one ive read about extensively and its BA-330 can have 2 of the same modules attached and become its own station which is what is in the works. it might go beyond nasa to do so in the future but it got a contract for 2005-06 for 18 mill to help with their space craft. NASA has put allot of money into all these companies in hopes to get something out of it such as flights to and from its trillion dollar station. but time will tell where all this is going to end up.
today they will open up the hatch after docking yesterday, so this will be the first of many flights space x has 12 in the works with nasa,or 11 after this not sure. the contracts will keep on coming to other companies. with stuff like this you can imagine the amount of tension it will bring later. so i hope these guys are preparing to go without nasa, lord knows somewhere they will get a stick up their ass and make a dumb ass rule for nothing.
unrelated and direct quote
"Dragon's successful test flight will clear SpaceX to begin its 12-flight, $1.6 billion contract with NASA to fly cargo to and from the station.
A second freighter being developed by Orbital Sciences Corp is expected to debut later this year. Orbital holds a second NASA cargo delivery contract worth $1.9 billion.
The Obama administration is pushing Congress to embrace similar partnership arrangement for commercial space taxis to fly astronauts as well.
Legislators last year halved Obama's request for space taxi design work to $406 million. Proposed spending plans for the year beginning October 1 would cut the White House's $830 million request to no more than $525 million."
so OA is wanting to fund the space project more. which is kool that gives more money to getting us back to the moon. russias already trying for a station now with USA having a hissy with these dudes, you know we never really trust anyone, we are going to be trying to pass russia in getting to the moon because well we think these dudes are going to use it for military space shit and could start a war or something... thinking out loud
orbital science corp(1.9 bill) has a bigger contract with nasa than space x(1.6 bill) we will see where this will head.
which means OSC will have more money to play with.
dragon is fucking huge!!!! why cant it have an eco lab on board?
http://www.space.com/15885-spacex-dragon-capsule-station-astronauts.html^^^ watch the video at the bottom, notice how fast the earth is moving until the dude speaks.
theres the war side of this..... its inevitable that we will have this war shit going on no matter where we go. but why does it have to be in space?
