The reading and the lecture are both about Privatization of space industry. The author of the reading believes that it is advantageous to everyone. However, the lecturer casts doubt on the main points made in the reading by providing three reasons. First of all, the author feels that the space travel would be cheaper, since there might be more competition among space travel companies that create motivation to cost down. Also, he states that it could maximize space research because they recruit many scientists. The lecturer refutes this claim. He is of the opinion that Space industries would need a lot of funds to construct infrastructure. Additionally, he points out that they need examine and re-examine to ensure safety of spaceship. Secondly, the writer suggests that it could lead space exploration because private companies employees many scientists with providing high salaries. The speaker casts doubt this specific claim. He states that authentic and true research may not be done because they bias on the benefits of respective company. Finally, the author mentions that space agencies would minimize cost of tickets and consumers might not need to pay tax because companies raise their fund from ticket selling. The lecturer, on the other hand, contradicts this argument by bringing the point that space industries need billions of dollars, and it would impossible without taking some governmental assist, so price of ticket could skyrocket. He notes that they need invest in the infrastructure such as effective traffic control system and space airport so on.
