 "Going to the Moon isn't something that should be strictly the domain of governments.  It's something that needs to be open to the people because a free people demand a new frontier; we need to have some place we can go. Right now, there aren't many new places we can go on Earth.  So we have to open up that [space] frontier and make it available to the rest of the world, that is to all of us [the people] as opposed to the governments that are over us."
