The Wall Street Journal (as expected) makes the case for privatizing space travel using Avatar like logic... "companies and investors are realizing that everything we hold of value—metals, minerals, energy and real estate—are in near-infinite quantities in space. As space transportation and operations become more affordable, what was once seen as a wasteland will become the next gold rush". The conservatives are confused about the whole thing (as expected)... "the discussion is a clash between two threads of conservatism, one that touts limited government and the empowerment of the private sector, the other that touts national security and national greatness as virtues as well."
