NASA announces plans to open ISS for commercial use

-Today’s a very remarkable day. NASA is opening
the International Space Station to commercial opportunities and
marketing these opportunities as we’ve never done before. We are announcing the ability
for private astronauts to visit the space station
on US vehicles and for companies
to engage in commercial profit-making
activities on the station. This is all building off of our
upcoming commercial crew vehicles
transporting astronauts, which will be used
by both government and private
citizen astronauts. This will open space
to new companies to unleash American corporate innovation
and ingenuity in new markets, all driving a lower
cost to US taxpayers. In fact, today we’re joined here
by the ISS National Lab and 20 of our US commercial
partner companies. The commercialization of
low-Earth orbit will enable NASA to focus resources
to land the first woman and next man
on the moon by 2024, as the first phase in creating
a sustainable lunar presence to prepare for future missions
to Mars.

    What I wanna know is who gets the money and where does it go since myself and all my hard working brothers and sisters in in these United States of America has paid out Trillions of dollars for this bunch of socialist Nazi Satanist? It does still belong to the American people doesn't it? So where's the money gonna go and I mean every damn cent? Tired of people supposed to be working for the American people and instead they think they can simply rob us with no oversight… Sorry but those days are fast coming to a close my friend!

    Why ISS? Why not our own US space station? Why include Russia? How many times we give China and Russia the bendfit of the doubt and in return screw us up?

    Did the American taxpayers approve of us spending BILLIONS so that private enterprises can exploit our space investment for their own benefit?

  • J - Hump Post author

    About time, much better then letting her burn up in the atmosphere like Meer ( how ever it is spelled ). The ISS is the opetamie of human technology, innovation, dedication, exploration, and the search for knowledge and understanding., a damn shame for it not to be viewed upon in awe by future generations.

    LOL, LMAO These dirtbags don't give up. Space X " The craft is now in deep space", meanwhile everyone and their brother in California is video'ing the failed debacle on the Iphones as it zooms horizontal off the coastline of LA! You can't make this stuff up! Well, some people can.

    No one will be able to escape the return of the King Jesus Christ!!! When its all said and done he will return in a "blink of a eye". I strongly doubt that we will see anything on Mars . This not my opinion I'm stating facts. Even to the non believers just look at the many stories of well known scientists who didnt believe then when they had near death experiences their eyes were open and now they are disciples of Christ Jesus. Everyone have a thing called free will but wisdom will teach you there's only one way. If your not saved i suggest you get saved your eternal life depends on it.

    I'm excited, having a refueling station and eventually some form of rocket assembly at the moon would make it much easier to send larger rockets throughout the solar system. Creating a 'sustainable lunar presence' will be very difficult, but its a necessary step if we want to explore the solar system more expansively. It is a bit of a bummer that the ISS is opening for commercial use cause its a really valuable space laboratory and we don't really know all of the potential effects of prolonged exposure in space yet. Hopefully NASA or some of the private companies can continue that research.

    I think it's funny that space travel is limited to 400 kilometers above the earth. The Chinese know we have cameras and other devices that can clearly see the moons surface,and activity would show up big time. With that being said, they tell the world that they went to the dark side of the Moon, and sent pics back from their little endeavor. Did anyone see those pics, damn they were terrible. Almost simultaneously,nasa had a probe from mars sending back pics from there that were stunning. Something seems amiss to me. But I'm sure the television set will take up the slack for people.

    Did NASA get approval from the four other space agencies that are joint partners? There are international treaties and the US can't just make a unilateral decision like this. I'm curious if we are provided with more details on how our partners are with the deal.

    Watch these promises be broken. And all they will do is get you high enough and start a free wall and ballers will say omg I was in space. And I'm sure they will have windows that curve the horizon a bit. And I'm sure globers will say I saw the curve too.

  • Dan Thomson Post author

    The “going to the Moon without paying for it” is just an effort to defund NASA (and climate research), and is consistent with everything the current administration has done to Department of Education, Energy, etc.

    This coming from the same people that say they don't have the technology that they had in 1969 to go to the Moon again.
