Space flight shows government may not be best for job

Posted: Thursday, July 01, 2004

Monday's remarkable flight by the Space-ShipOne rocket plane, which barely scraped across the arbitrary outer boundary of Earth's atmosphere, may have been one small step for manned spaceflight, but it was one giant leap for the entrepreneurial spirit. It sent a soaring signal that the era of commercial space travel offered by private industry may be nearer than we think. And it provided further evidence that while there are many things that government is well-equipped to do, matters of efficient, timely innovation are best left to a free, competitive market.
