I hadn't seen this Jeff Greason talk at Ted (TEDxSanJoseCA):

If you like Greason, you'll like this a lot. If you don't, you won't.

Jeff Greason has to be one of the best space polucy speakers around, and while you may agree or disagree with the paths he favors he does a helluva job making his case. Personally, I think he makes a lot of sense.

I don't know too much about XCOR so that was pretty educational. The other two, somewhat well known, speeches I've watched of his were strictly space policy speeches. I liked hearing him talk about his own company for part of this speech. Suddenly, to me at least, suborbital is a little more exciting.
...water is life and it is out there, where we intend to go. I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man or machine on a body such as the Moon and harvest a cup of water for a human to drink or process into fuel for their craft.
