If all goes with this test and the following one, I wonder if some other countries might approach Space-X to provide for their programs?
Imagine if Japan, Brazil, Korea, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the UK or even Australia said, "hey we don't have to develop our own program and we don't have to go to the US or Russia. We can just buy these Falcon/Dragons."
Space-X has put a lot into the US, but has stated interest from other places.
There is something in me that says, if this is successful, it might just create an amazing new industry with immense competition worldwide. Not for getting to space, but for winning government contracts to provide access to space from those countries.
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!
