Private Space Flight Gets Boost From Congress

Congress this week voted in favor of a bill known at the Space Act of 2015, also called H.R. 2262 or the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act, which opens the door — or rather, the sky — to independent firms looking to make a profit in space.

The Space Act, which awaits President Barack Obama's signature, aims to expand the U.S. space industry by letting private firms (as in not NASA or the military) launch missions to explore and collect space materials for commercial purposes. That means companies that can afford to launch a private mission to excavate in space could, in theory, mine asteroids for precious minerals.

On the surface that looks great for exploring the final frontier.  
Although, concern of regulations and policies that hold profit for the chosen few is paramount in the final front tier of who gets what.  
Those in the back are ready to attack! 
Out there, beyond the Earth, is Enterprise for all!
