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 and 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. One war, one Ranger!
