Space X: Privatizeing Space, Space Porn (=tourism), Or Good Sense?
# 1 : Sunday 31-5-2020 @ 09:50
Space X had its first successfully "manned" mission.

Is it the start of a fully privately exploited space, with governement handing over the profits to the private sectior after over half a century of publicly funded exploration?

Nasa even gave free advertisement to Tesla cars on that occasion.

In fairness, Space X has been cheaper and faster than any previous shuttle program... but was it only a trick to get an "in" and then up the prices? [Nasa has 2 other vendors lined up in case...]

The public don't "own space"

Also it sounds kinda hilariously arrogant to talk about "exploiting space"

Like... we are nothing. We less significant by an unimaginably larger degree of insignificance, then a yeast infection on a Norwegian squirrel's ballsack, talking about "exploiting" the entire Eurasian continent.

More proof, the rich have too much money to spend and won't spend it on hummanity. They should, clean their room before heading out for a night in space

That's true of all human endeavor.

Exploiting (natural) resources is part of the definition of humanity.
You may be referring to the negative of "exploiting": taking advantage, taking too much, abusing, being underhanded, being unfair, using backdoors or loopholes.

But to exploit is to make the best use of a resource.

Using something well doe sit automatically mean "being a user "...
