Senator John McCain's Space Policy

Senator John McCain has recently updated his space policy on the campaign website, and the Google Lunar X PRIZE was listed as part of his support for a commercial space sector!

"Activity within the commercial sector continues to increase beyond the traditional role of launching satellites. In 2007, the [X PRIZE] Foundation announced a prize of $30 million in a global competition to build the first robotic rover capable of landing on the Moon. Several companies are planning to develop and build spacecraft for space tourism."

Awesome! Now if only Obama could look towards the private sector as well instead of giving more money towards big government...
