I will say that even though this was an interesting publicity ploy, he has done more to inspire people and show people first hand the beauty of outer space than government funded enterprises have ever done. Many people write Elon Musk off as a nut who will not succeed, but it exactly THIS type of person we need to inspire people to reach for more than the average person thinks possible. Without people like that we would still be driving buggies behind horses.

Don't think for a moment that any of Musk's enterprises aren't government funded.
