Jerry Pournelle Chaos Manor: On Dragon Docks, the Commercial Space Era Kickoff

|

The Space Station caught the Dragon by the tail. It’s the first instance of the success of the new NASA policy. A long time ago some of us said that NASA shouldn’t be running operations, it should create markets and let the industry take care of the rest. The government doesn’t operate the railroads, or the airlines, or the trucking industry. Even though a great deal of rail, airline freight and passenger, and highway freight is government stuff. Fort Hood doesn’t operate trucking lines to go out and bring food to the mess halls. It pays for delivery. Thus should it be with NASA.
