Dave King: Old Ways Of Thinking Still Persist

No Market For Commercial Space Flight?, WAAY.TV

"I don't believe there's a market for it on a large scale for commercialization," said [Dave] King. King says commercial companies could be used for tourism and to possibly take some cargo to low earth orbit but he doesn't believe there will be enough people willing to pay companies for low earth orbit exploration, like education at the space station. "My personal opinion is that commercial companies should be taking cargo to low earth orbit but if it's a human NASA should probably be involved," said King."

Keith's note: Well Dave, you had your shot at building big government rockets with no concern for what things cost in the real world, so I can understand why you'd think this way.
