• Private space exploration corporations are fairly ineffective, or have been so far. Space exploration was a big deal in the 1950's and 1960's, then we ran out of interest in the 1970's and 1980's. By the 1990's, it was really just a footnote in American history. What is the aim of exploring space any further than we already have? There is a curiosity factor that is extremely high, but that alone doesn't mean that further (or is it farther in this case? sort of ambiguous, I suppose) exploration will result in a stronger economy in the future. Technological superiority is key, but things like nanotechnology might be a more apparent next step than setting up bases on Mars or whatever the long-term goal even is.
