RAWilson and Leary's predictions are being realized.  Space flight and space exploration is becoming democratised moreso as private companies now compete vigorously for space-hungry customers.

 

Leary would say the DNA directive for human primates to migrate into (SMI2LE) space is on track.      

 

Private companies are launching a new space race – here's what to expect | The Open University

 

The space race between the USA and Russia started with a beep from the Sputnik satellite exactly 60 years ago (October 4, 1957) and ended with a handshake in space just 18 years later. The handshake was the start of many decades of international collaboration in space. But over the past decade there has been a huge change.

The space environment is no longer the sole preserve of government agencies. Private companies have entered the exploration domain and are propelling the sector forward more vigorously and swiftly than would be the case if left to governments alone.

It could be argued that a new space race has begun, in which private companies are competing against each other and against government organisations. But this time it is driven by a competition for customers rather than the urge to show dominance by being first to achieve a certain goal.

Okay, but the math suggests this article is 4 years old. No karma. No blame. But I was standing in the radio room at Fort Monmouth (NJ) on that cited date, and as one of the first folks to hear that beep, I'm sensitive about it.

This subject was on the news last week so no it's not a mere 4 year old fad.

Okay, but the math suggests ...

... otherwise (i.e., 2017).

Those were the days my friend,
we thought they'd never end ...

Yeah. The first sat. Now, there is enough space junk up there to endanger Chicken Little, who was a prophet of our times.
