Google and Fidelity have invested 1 billion buckazoids in Space-X.
Wow! Private commercial spaceflight gets a kick in the butt just when it needs to. Hooray!
Also, Space-X is building launch facilities on the Texas Gulf Coast. That way when the US economy collapses and Texas secedes, they'll still have a place to launch rockets from and Texas will have its own space program.
Personally, I think we should add the moon as a Texas county and start mining and manufacturing operations immediately - get Brown & Root to build the plants. We could certainly defend the place. We make nukes in Amarillo! Also we have Chuck Norris in case war breaks out.
