    Do you think that privatized space exploration will be able to replace the Space Shuttle?

    The Space Shuttle will be replaced by privately constructed ships. Space X and other companies are building the next generation of America's space exploration and other vehicles. Will this work?

    Technically it may work, Xenonlit,  but to me at least it's a very, very scary idea. They'll end up building a Death Ray, mark my words! Lol!

    I believe it will, it's no different really then any other industry. It will grow and evolve and in the end the private sector will be able to launch or repair satellites and make supply runs to the space station. which is really the main thing the shuttle did as well.

      That's the goal. We have privatization fever and never get the point that the taxpayer is still liable and responsible. It all lowers the government profile for what?

      It does have its advantages, multiple companies with different designs will come up with improvements faster then a single government designed and run craft with a service length of 30+ years without a major design change.

    I think it will and am glad to see that the tax payer's money isn't going towards space missions anymore.

      The taxpayer is paying for this.

      Really? I did not know that- I assumed the private company takes on all financial costs.
