In the film Aloha (2015) a USAF general remarks about a private aerospace company owner who tried


to secretly launch a nuclear weapons platform disguised as a communications satellite, "That's what we get for allowing civilians (private companies) in the space program." Do you agree with him?

    What an entertaining, delightful answer! I do remember those novels & world events. And yes, why would corporations put nukes in space other than to blast competition, unless corp's were govt contractors building for USA (bad idea, such nukes)?

    I was brought up short by the general's comment & will be more aware of any corruption in aerospace. I wonder if insurance covered losses of supplies and rocketry on that crashed Russian supply run recently. Will we have "blow it up and collect"?

    I think I know no one personally right now in the Middle Class. In Central OH, some employers are awarding a 2% DECREASE in wages to workers when they reach age 50, and down 2% each year until minimum wage is reached. What is happening to USA?

    Thanks for the Hub. I had never thought of a socialist space program for America. I think the Commercial Crew that NASA gathered is not greedy at this time.
