Default If You Could Cause Someone to Land on the Moon Tomorrow bySending NASA $5 Today, Would You Do it?

How would you feel if you put $80 per year for 10 years into going to
Mars and after 10 years you found the money was wasted and no one ever
went?

How would you feel if you thought this might happen?

How would you feel if someone organized people around their enthusiasm
for space to raise billions of dollars and were building rockets and
all the rest, making progress, and then a million scammers cam out of
the closet and used the same pitch to steal billions of dollars from
people?

There is only one way to make this stuff work.

Get the government out of the space business and let us own property
off world and not tax off world investments for a century.

Get the military to let go of all the space asset secrecy to qualified
commercial users.

And let the market develop interplanetary space without interference.

I'd think Willie Mookie had gotten involved.

Why, because the word 'scammer' was used, which implies someone making
the pitch with no hardware to back it up.

Why is that Freddie? You still don't make any sense.
