The Economist Ponders America's Future in Space

No plan B for outer space, The Economist

"Here's a wizard idea. Spend $40 billion building a big tin can in orbit round the Earth, in orderat least in partto keep the rocket scientists of your former enemy from going to work for your current enemies. Then find that a law intended to stop the current enemies getting their hands on such rocket scientists' knowledge means you can no longer use this expensive tin can. Confused? You are not the only one."
