So to cut to the chase. Government opened up new territories, protected them and the trade routes and private business just ruthlessly and very destructively exploited what Government had provided. Basically the same hold true of access to space. Private industry will not open up access to space, government will and then private industry will seek to ruthlessly and destructively exploit that ie a bunch of people will die and private enterprises takes it typical greed driven short cuts, guaranteed. So Neil deGrasse Tyson was politely accurately not extending out his statement to cover the role of private industry in space, as ruthless greed driven exploiters. So, will private enterprise help to push government to open up access to space. NAH not really, a tiny minority might but the vast majority will just want to turn inward stare at their own navel fluff as they pose around on the planet lording it over the rest of us, really pathetic shit.
