At the time of writing, only Russia has spaceships that don`t have an ``X`` in their designation number..

The ISS has to rely on the Russian Soyuz craft to bet people there and back again. Don't get me wrong; the Soyuz is a tried and tested ship.
But with the increasing tension in international politics, we in the West should have our own spaceships, methinks.

in a perfect world science would not be affected by politics but we are nowhere near perfection so I believe the West does need an independent space capability. I am all for SpaceX and look forward to the timewhen it would seem odd that only governments traveled to space not citizens

This has been a really bad week for western space activity.
First, the freighter Cygnus en route to the ISS had to self-destruct seconds after launch.
Then, Virgin's Spaceship 2 crashed, killing one of the crew and injuring the other.

It's the Greys trying to quarantine us so we don't spread Ebola to the rest of the universe.
