Isn’t NASA publicly funded? We are funding a space utilities company now?


Man, this was a whole lot cooler when I glanced down and misread “pirate space stations.” YARRR!


Interesting that this tech uses SS alloy booms, and we’ve been hearing a ton about JPL’s carbon fiber booms. The sail’s next year are going to be 10x the surface area of this one because of that.


Fuk, I misread this as NASA allows private space stations, I was pissed thinking why tf NASA thinking it can tell everyone what they can and can’t do in space. Almost lost my cool there.


Billionaires going to their space stations because The Lunar Ritz Carlton isn’t finished yet.
