Re: Governments won't get us into space to any degree that matters

Well, yes they have - twas Governments that made the first steps into space - and no first step, no second step. And while I agree that (most likely) it will be private enterprise which finishes the job, I could just point out that there's not been that much evidence of commercial enterprises desperately trying to get us to the stars in exchange for customer money: how many man-rated commercial spacecraft are operating now exactly? And how long ago did those lazy, inefficient, taxpayer-gouging Goverments first do it?
