Elon Musk’s ventures with SpaceX may be coming to a halt. The FAA has halted approvals for the Starship rocket system. Whether you believe that China pushed Biden, that recent failures, Musk’s intentions for Mars, or perhaps Biden’s irritation over the GameStop controversies caused this… it doesn’t matter. I find it very sad that this may represent another stalling in our quest to explore strange new worlds… like Mars, the moon, or even the dreams that we have as children to become astronauts.
The United States is in a titanic struggle with the People’s Republic of China for the dominance of space.
