Sound Off: Should space exploration be conducted by private or public organizations?

Sharlon Regales, senior computer science

“Privatization has more possibilities because of less regulations, but, public programs promote scientific study, and still need funding for space travel.”

Allison Fron, sophomore environmental science

“Exploration should stay in the public realm, and be for the sake of research and
discovery, not profit.”

Abby Laurencelle, sophomore nursing

“I support any advancement of science and space exploration, as long as it remains unbiased and non-political.”

Nikolai Klebba, sophomore computer science

“People don’t want to fund through the government, so, it’s inevitable that we’ve gone into private and commercial space exploration.”
