    Agreed. Right now, I think no one is really allowed to own a piece of land on another planet due to some international law (can't recall which it is). If you can't own anything in outer space, then what's point in making profit off of that? You need motivation and a good reason to pursue interplanetary commerce and trade.
    You're right. Without profits, without a dynamic international competition like the Cold War, you simply are not going to get a sustainable base of support among the taxpayers.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Dream Chaser Spacecraft

        About Dream Chaser

        SNC's Dream Chaser spacecraft is a multi-mission space utility vehicle designed for transporting crew and cargo to low-Earth orbit (LEO) destinations such as the International Space Station.
        Our Dream Chaser spacecraft was selected by NASA to provide cargo delivery, return and disposal service for the space station under the Commercial Resupply Service 2 (CRS-2) contract. Dream Chaser will carry critical supplies like food, water, and science experiments and returns to Earth with a gentle runway landing. The spacecraft will provide a minimum of six cargo missions to and from the space station starting in late 2020.
