CLC Jr insists both Musk and Zuckerberg are from the future.....
I see that crab air have made a grab at space command and see it as their niche. This is a smart move as it guarantees their long-term future for however many hundreds of years.
Should the other services not consider that too? The Royal Navy should try and get in on it, after all they're called space ships not space planes. The army is probably guaranteed as expeditionary troops when Britain eventually gets to Mars.
Unfortunately, mankind being what it is, one day there'll probably be a war on Mars too and countries will bring their petty squabbling into space.
It's easier to solve non-existent problems than real ones, that would explain part of it, the other possible explanation is that space travel just doesn't get people excited any more.Thread drift, but rocket related.
I‘ve been a bit annoyed this week with MSM coverage of space exploration.
While the Chinese Mars rover has had just about no MSM coverage, and perhaps as little as one spoken sentence in any one news programme, the story about non binary people being offended by being called ‘ladies and gentlemen’ on a train announcement has had multiple news segments all of its own, and the coverage has run to hours and hours.
