Will Elon Musk and his company Space X be the future of humans in space? He and his company are motivated to achieve safe space travel carrying a larger payload at a fraction of the cost of NASA.
This promises to be a tremendous competition for the future of space travel and the future of humans in space. Private enterprise is motivated to get this job done.
The price tag and risk are enormous but the pay-back could be astronomical. It is natural for humans to explore space. Ultimately it is also necessary for humans to travel beyond Earth.
With NASA's budget slashed and space travel is becoming unpopular with the US public, the US government may find it difficult if not impossible to provide public funding for future space travel.
The last time the US public opinion favoured space travel was in the space race against the USSR. The Saturn V program was arguably the most impressive rocket program to date carrying a huge payload into space. However motivation to fund the program came from the space race to the moon and also, it was used as a research program to perfect the intercontinental ballistic missile system. That's right, without a military purpose, the NASA program does not get the attention or funding.
Therefore, it will likely be left up to private companies like Space X to be the future of human space travel.
