Why is NASA so opposed to capitalism? If you want to pay to put a satellite in orbit economically, you have to goto China or elsewhere. If you want to be a space tourist, you have to goto Russia. And if you buy a moon rock on the open market, NASA will have you prosecuted.

I think NASA is worried that if it develops its own sources of income, then Congress will give it less money. The same disease inflicts PBS, NPR, Amtrak, and other socialistic government enterprises. Congress should cut off all their money, at least until their attitude changes.
