Commercial Space Growing

http://venturebeat.com/2009/08/02/a-netscape-moment-for-the-space-industry/

The above article is quite good, so why try to rewrite what someone else did so well? :)

My take on this is quite simple, as investors start to see the serious potential in the private space industry, it will lead to stronger growth and higher aspirations from the private space companies. Investment begets growth. LEO is but the first step on the ladder, and as long as the U.S. government, and governments around the world for that matter, help to make it possible for the private space industry to solidify markets and build the industry, we will see the New Space Movement become the next major evolution in the economy of mankind.

Its true that private space engineering is the next generations challenge and probably the one industry that will not be effected with world recession, but, the irony is obvious, degree standard intellect is not good enough to power any real serious momentum on any real business proposals for space develpoment programmes.

This is still a government thing and really governors and 'senators' need to be brought forward from office desk local economics to social development theory based on dollars for 'numbers of global warming breathes'.

Those changing theoretical stances will harbor new and changing policies that will see governors explaining the neccesseties to be vegan and why we have more than a billion cows creating 500 cubic litres of methane each per day, did someone tell them that sort of burp/fart power puts colonies on planets ''and kicks them off!''
