Seems like we should be able to sell indie boosters using the
touchy feely greenie attitudes that are so popular these days.
We need some of that in extropians. Somebody think of a
way to make extropians greenie touchy feely. {8-]

NASA would loooooove it if some indie would figure out
a way to launch stuff cheaper. The expense of launching is
holding them back as much as anything. They have shown
the willingness to pull back in order to avoid competing
with such outfits as Orbital Sciences. spike
