I agree with Peter. And as a member of AMSAT-NA and a person that resides
in NA, I have said these statements publically many times. Actually, one of
my last postings addresses item #1 in your e-mail.
Also, it goes without saying that #2 is an imperitive. The only reason that
the ARISS team has been able to acquire 9 launches of hardware to ISS since
2000 is that the space agencies have a stake in our activities as it
supports getting students from 6 years old to college age interested in
science, technology and mathematice. They are willing to invest in these
flights because they see a benefit to them as well as society.
So I think this wisdom is shared worldwide.
