I don't really understand all of the desires,.. impetus, urgency about going into space...militarily, to inhabit, communications, to have control, or whatever.I'm pretty sure that all of us and most of the people on the earth...don't, but...
Bezos' rocket was impressive the way it returned to earth, and can be reused twenty something times,..the capsule itself, and the way the capsule returned to earth..and landed so softly the way it did...very impressive. ....I have seen what the first space capsules looked like close up. Very, very crude.
