SpaceX Marks the Spot

SpaceX capsule

The private space exploration company SpaceX has just launched an (unmanned) space capsule, headed for a rendezvous with the international space station.

SpaceX is under contract to NASA, so this isn’t true privatisation yet; but at least it introduces a bit of independence.

This seems an appropriate occasion to post once again a link to “How the West Wasn’t Won,” an excellent parable on the incoherence of NASA.
