Has NASA Lost Its Mojo?
Opinion: The billionaires’ space efforts may seem tone-deaf, but they’re important milestones, Miles O’Brien, Washington Post
“While NASA (and its Pasadena, Calif.-based Jet Propulsion Lab) are unmatched at unmanned space probes, the agency’s record for manned missions has lagged, to say the least. For decades, NASA has acted like that guy bragging in a bar about winning a state championship 50 years ago. You may not love them, but the billionaires behind these private-sector efforts have both the resources and the impatience with government bureaucracy to put Americans back in space – where they belong.”
