Space Race

Every time 40 rednecks get into their NASCARs and drive in circles at 200 mph, they manage to attract 100,000+ people to come see it in person, and millions more tune in on television to watch.

But recently, when they launch astronauts into space at 10,000 mph, only a fraction as many people take notice.

Solution: Have two or more rockets racing each other into space. Americans like competition- that’s why the original “Space Race” was such a success- us versus the Ruskies. We need to bring back that type of competitive atmosphere to the space program.

    It would be more fun to have the race on the way back down

    That’s simply a race of gravity vs. aerodynamics, not any different than soap box derby race.
