Congressional underfunding of commercial crew could slip the program beyond 2017, necessitating NASA to buy more rides on Russian Soyuz spacecraft at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars. Seems like anyone conversant with Econ 101 should be able to conclude that full funding for commercial crew is the only sensible option.

Move over NASA and make room for the TVA of space: A model for accelerated commercial space development | The Space Review

Move over NASA and make room for the TVA of space: A model for accelerated commercial space development | The Space Review | Space Development | Scoop.it

The change in NASA strategy to encourage commercial space development is already bearing fruit, with successful launches by SpaceX and the formation of an increasing number of commercial space development firms. However, notwithstanding these early successes, NASA is far from being an ideal vehicle for advancing commercial development of space.

 

Space pioneers such asteroid mining companies Deep Space Industries and Planetary Resources; Golden Spike, which plans commercializing lunar exploration; and Bigelow Aerospace would be joined by many other firms doing even more exciting things if financing were available and if there were a clear legal framework for space industrial development.

 

The US can take the global lead in commercial space development through the formation of a Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) of space development to accelerate space industrialization.

I found this to be a revolting read ... a global space communism in place of commercial progress

Interesting. I'll have to read all of this then. TVA took place during FDR's presidency. Many still accuse him of socialism.
