    "Under private organization we dont need to be finically limited by governing body." As per what NASA spoke person said during interview with the astronauts when they got to International space station. I wholeheartedly agree. With programs like space X we can see perhaps more advancement into space. I heard they want to make a base on the moon similar to what the international space station does. Maybe they'll be building rockets or ships from there which would reduce costs eventually. Very exciting times!

    While I'm not living in Florida atm and wasn't able to watch in-person, I was able to catch it live on TV and it was phenomenal! Not just the successful launch but then to see the rocket land safely to be reused for future flights was very impressive. I'm very glad Elon Musk has done so much with SpaceX and look forward to whats to come. Great article Chris, thanks for putting it out! Live Long and Prosper

    It may not be in my lifetime, I would never be able to afford it, and I kinda hate to admit it, but space tourism is one of the most exciting aspects of private industry taking such a big part in this for me.

    Thanks Michael and I agree it was an impressive launch, I watched it after the fact due to work.

    Now they've done this I'm expecting SoaceX to double their efforts to be honest
