There is little doubt that individual companies engage in strategic
planning for the future of their enterprise; this is a vastly
different issue than planning related to the future of an industry,
or, as you suggest, planning *which* industry should be supported by us.
I cannot offer any insight as to which industries in space or which
companies will succeed - as opposed to your offerings here. Perhaps
you have special knowledge of planned capitalism that I do not possess.
PS: I believe that we are now wildly off track, and we could continue
this discussion beyond the point during which people will be paying
money for tickets for rides into space. All I can say concerning
suborbital space tourism is:
If we are lucky, some companies will sell tickets and transport
people into space. Some of those companies will fail. We are lucky,
at least one will survive and maybe make a profit.
