Jeff Bezos’ rocket journey was on whilst I was eating breakfast, so I watched it. There is no issue that the know-how behind it is amazing, and that new things will in the end spin out of it. The personal computer sector and all the superior (and negative) it has introduced to the entire world was largely a spin off from NASA and the moon landing. They did the engineering for the moon landing with slide policies, but the line from your cell phone to some engineer at NASA is really straight.
The inspiration driving the moon landing was not solely scientific improvement. There was much more than a minimal little bit of concern about getting capable to nuke the Ruskis from space just before they did it to us. The International Space Station seems to be much less dread-driven and more purely scientific. Bezos and Richard Branson aren’t motivated
