Breakout – A New Model for NASA

In this episode of the Breakout with Newt Gingrich podcast, Newt discusses how
NASA, once the world’s model for innovation and the exploration of space, has
become so bureaucratized that it now serves as nothing more than another broken
government agency. If the federal government were actually serious about a revival
of NASA and our space program, it would create a prize model. With all of the money
our federal agencies waste on a yearly basis, it should instead entice entrepreneurs
to create solutions that restore the American space program to the position of
prominence it held for so many years. Companies like SpaceX have already begun to
reach into space, giving us a glimpse of what the future of space travel holds. In the 21st
century, it is likely that a company such as SpaceX will allow us to explore further into
space than we could ever imagine.
