I read a wonderful story about a company leasing space at a new Space Port, not airport, in New Mexico. I was glad to read that one, it is a good piece of news, that I wish the MSM would pick up and report on. This is the second company to lease space and prepare to move forward in space, and re-usable space craft. The plans are to perfect their space craft that will allow people to go into space and return in the same vehicle. That of course was the idea behind the Shuttle program that NASA used, but never improved upon and moved to the next level.

The good thing about this is that we have entrepreneurs who are working to move into the future that our government has abandoned. Bravo to these imaginative people. We landed on the moon so many years ago and have never capitalized on that knowledge that we gained in doing so. I really thought back then that we were on the way to the exploration of our Solar System, and beyond. Instead we decided to get ourselves off on a different track, and here we are the government (NASA) is more involved in catering to Muslim people to buck up their self-esteem. I thought that NASA was supposed to be working on moving us into the next section in our exploration of space. At the same time I am actually happy to see NASA taking a back seat to innovators in the private sector, maybe we will actually start a colony on the moon, and Mars and move out into space to look at the tremendous wonder that is the universe. It is a good thing to get rid of bureaucrats, whose sole purpose is to increase their own fiefdom, and move on to the age of innovation and private industry. It was private industry that moved our nation into the powerhouse it had become and will again do so if left alone by the rapacious government that wants to control everything and ends up stifling innovation.

Time will tell of course, but I think it is a wonderful thing for our nation and for the State of New Mexico.
