    Love it. This is fantastic. In 50 years, commercial spaceflight agencies will dominate. They’ll also continue to fight government legislation after botched attempts to police their own industry. Sure enough, there will be a huge disaster in space caused by some bloated company and some feckless CEO that would rather boat race that fix the problem.

    I think you missed the point of his post, but these guys are awesome (I’m assuming these are the guys that are doing the commercial flights).

    I think he was making a point about industries policing themselves poorly and how this will almost certainly go that way as well.

    Until I read the comment, I thought this was Madonna’s new dildo. Then I realized, it’s too small for her.
