"To lower the cost of spaceflight so that many people can afford to go"

January 4, 2007

Jeff Bezos, founder of amazon.com, is releasing images and videos of his new private spacecraft. His "Goddard" vehicle recently made a short test flight and is the first step towards achieving commercial exploration of space.

Says Bezos: "We're working, patiently and step-by-step, to lower the cost of spaceflight so that many people can afford to go; and so that we humans can better continue exploring the Solar System."

Lower costs? Greater access? Sounds quite different from the socialist "alternative."
