    know what you mean about corporations. Maybe these firms or others like them will turn into Exxon one day. But the people funding them now are risking huge fortunes. I've met some of these guys and gals, they come in all backgrounds. They're not into space or wiulling to invest huge into space travel for politics, they're actually not even that into it for bucks. Bucks is just a viable path for necessary progression to them. They're into space for the same reason a good actor is into acting, they love space, they eat and breathe space, it's downright spiritual for many of them.

    And while there are indeed conservative among them, that doesn't have to be a terrible thing. And there are lots people in the NewSpace community who are super progressive. My anecdotal experience progressives are represented by three to one.
