Robert Zimmerman, Starship, Elon Musk: fins attached.  Been a year in construction; will have three Raptor engines, most powerful and efficient rocket engines ever made. Private programs compared to earlier, govt programs: in the 1960s. NASA functioned the way it should have.  Need to compare with the giant swamp govt boondoggle today, e.g., Orion. Orion contracts sent out willy-nilly to different companies, but Congress hasn't authorized any money. These contracts are all to help NASA lobby for the program.  Russia and China team up on lunar lander/orbiter projects, on a lunar lander and unmanned missions. The US is currently ’way behind. China is far in the lead. I don’t want a space program dictated by the govt; I want a chaotic, competitive industry.  This competes very effectively with Russia.
        NASA awards Lockheed Martin long-term Orion contract.  Australia signs on to Artemis.  Boeing pushing to kill Gateway, NASA boondoggle?
