All the recent chatter about the various space missions, ion thrusters, potential for giant balls of metal to crash into the planet etc... has made me think. Why do countries such as thr USA, UK, Japan etc... all run individual space programs, and only occasionally collaborating (such as the international space station).
It is plainly obvious that full collaboration creates amazing advances so why don't we do it more often? And why don't we do it with other industries?
But then, that just makes me a sound like a 'communist'... :P
