Unbranded and home on the range.

Vacationing on Mars.

Further to this post I wrote a while back, I’d like to link a Newsweek article that talks about privatizing space.

I’m sure some people reading this are going to take offense, as it seems space is such a territory that should remain “for everyone” but here are a few thoughts for those folks to consider:

1.) The article is about privatizing space travel. As in, allow private companies to pioneer new methods of space transport and housing, instead of relying only on government-associated entities such as NASA.

2.) In my view, outer space is a territory just like land, sea, and air. No one disputes that states, countries, and nations have claim over certain stretches of the Earth, and that these claims are enshrined within universally accepted and established political boundaries. So why not outer space? (Although this is not what the Newsweek article is discussing.)
