Can't wait until it's a collective effort instead of the "we did it first" mentality. Obviously countries that don't get along on the ground have been up to a certain point working together in space, but dam, wouldn't it be nice if countries met up and decided that space exploration is beyond our world and pooled resources together? Now that I read that back to myself it seems out of this world actually. I'll leave lol.

To some extent I don't think it's necessary a bad thing. Sure collaborating is good but so is competition. Another thing is having two groups working on the same goal might mean that one tries something the other is to focused on their idea to attempt. I'd rather nations make heroes out of astronauts than soldiers and if that means friendly competition (in comparison to an arms race) then I'm fine with it

I would be overjoyed to see some explicit statements to this effect from the various agencies - sharing research, collaborating freely, and all working for a common goal and good.

Humanity is imperilled by our own selfish carelessness, now is not the time to be competitive and secretive in space research of any kind.
