Space Exploration or Armageddon for Everyone?
I saw a presentation today that was promoting a technology that would allow the poorest nations (even marginally rich individuals) to put people and satellites into space. (Bringing them back down would be another matter and yes this is a real functioning product)
The point is, should this technology be made available to every nation through the private market?
Keep in mind that this technology would allow the poorest nations in the world to deliver atomic warheads to any point on the globe. Obviously, this technology is already heavily controlled and will remain controlled, but should it be?
Should it be released at all?
