I have a plan to get into space

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I figured out how to really pump the space program, get bases on the moon, a trip to Mars, and it's all so ridiculously simple, I'm surprised that no one has twigged onto it and tried it yet.


All the water for this trip to Mars is delicious Aquafina, provided by Pepsi. Visa, the official card of the Mars Mission. Anyone can slam dunk on the Moon, but here on Earth, you'll need Nike (Official shoe of the Space Program).

Can you imagine the millions of dollars private corporations would be willing to throw at this? The press that it would give them? Exclusive vending and advertising rights to the highest bidder! Sell out the space program to make it succeed!

      ...Russia did try this, with the International Space Station. They were using it to film commercials for stuff like Pepsi, and there was even an attempt to set up a "reality TV show" where the winner would go to the station. Additionally, there have been numerous offers by corporations to do "space tourist" things and whatnot.

      The fundamental problem is that NASA just refuses to do it. They're a big, slow-moving gov't entity that has no interest in "efficiency" or "doing things quickly".

      Look at how long they took to get the Shuttle back in space. And that was after just *1* accident. What if any factory shut down for that long to "review safety procedures and put changes in place" after an employee got mauled in a machine? Everybody'd think they were fucking crazy.
