I've wanted to convert NASA from the FED's to private for years. Do you notice that every 4 or 8 years good ideas and programs get canned mainly because the name of the founding creator is not the current fool in the White House.
My idea to fund a privatized NASA is to make space projects a tax free expense, that's no taxing all expenditures or profits of private programs and expenditures.
All work or projects must be in space, the only earth bound tax free projects would be schooling and education.
Private companys can do anything anyway, the just have to pass OSHA laws that exist at the time. There will be no 5 year OSHA studys to hold back projects or spend billions in government money thus paying off people so side one way or the other. In plain English, no Pork of any kind. If discovered then the money repayment is responsibility paid my those involved and down the family tree of the one involved, no more money owed ends at death.
