Virgin Galactic vs NASA

Space Featured Image 2

Hey guys it's me again artistic_opinion and today I will be talking about virgin galactic and NASA. Lets begin!

Virgin Galactic:

Virgin Galactic is a spaceflight company within the Virgin Group. It is developing commercial spacecraft and aims to provide suborbital spaceflights to space tourists and suborbital launches for space science missions. Virgin Galactic plans to provide orbital human spaceflights as well.

Virgin Galactic is a business which invests in people touring space and they earn their profits then. In contrast, NASA is a governmental project/commpany and their mkney funded for NASA comes from the US Presidential Bank.


In my opinion, I think that NASA and Virgin Galactic, aswell as other companies could be involved in another space war. However, I also belive that NASA has an advantage in this theory, and as they givernment could fund this project. As for Virgin Galactic, they could beat NASA but if their profits and business plan goes down the hill they probably would fail.

    Thanks for your post. Can you write some questions that will get the discussion going? What is it you'd like other BNC members to think about having read this and what would you like them discuss?

    The questions:
    1. If another space war happened between these to groups, who would win?
    2. Who do you think is better?

      I am very unsure who would win this war, as NASA has the military from the entier USA (which is the country that spends the most money on the military), but the USA may try to stop and prevent this from becoming a major war. However, VIRGIN Galactic will have nobody to try and stop them from going to war. Despite this, if the US decided to go to war, they would win due to their insane military power (plus Trump's new space force). As for the second question, I have a definite opinion. I think that NASA is better and doing the right thing, as I do not approve of space tourism*.

      *I do really like VIRGIN Galactic's website layout and design, but that is not very relevant

        Would they get involved in a war with each other, or do you think it's more likely they would just be in competition for business and money?

    NASA hasn't launched a rocket in years I think it is going to fail but VIRGIN Galatic is coming out in years so NASA might beat Virgin.
