Scientists just want to get on with it and leave politics aside.

NASA is leaving low-Earth orbit activities to private companies so that it can concentrate on the Moon and deep space, a good division of resources.

What has become of the Packet Amateur Radio communications that offered a direct link to the Astronauts in the past ?

I have made direct communication previously but not heard anything in a while 145.825MHz: FM

The most advanced and cost-effective space capsules are in the States right now

(The capsule actually looks futuristic and comfortable, and even uses touch-screen!)

So of course even the Russians won't be opposed to it

Wouldn't it be good if the nations and peoples of the world could cooperate in space exploration?

To give Elon Musk Credit, he has done two things so far that have contributed towards the advancement of World/Human Technology ... Productionized the Electric Car, and Produced reusable Rocket parts. He's a smart guy, way smarter than me, and I am certainly in no position to criticize him here, for those achievements.

I wish, I could go into Space.. but will sadly never be able to afford to do so - even the one way trip to Mars has been cancelled.... :(

If Musk wants to beat NASA (& others) to the Moon, then, I'd jump at the chance and go Tomorrow .. with the "realistic" caveat, that my Life insurance policy be honored (Legally), and that I be paid a normal salary for the period travelling there and back. Forget the tests, etc. Let's just do it !
