06/27/2006 Archived Entry: "Billionaires make space fun again"

AT LEAST FOUR MEGA-BILLIONAIRES are putting their all into making space exciting again. NPR finds it amazing (and perhaps a bit annoying) that former geek boys would still dream of building rocket ships in their own backward. But the report is encouraging despite the tut-tutting.

How sad that anybody would think that the cloak of bureaucratic boredom NASA cast over the moon, stars, and planets is the normal state of things. C'mon Mssrs. Bezos, Allen, Musk, and Carmack (and all your friends); get us off this planet and out in the vast realms where government fears to go.
