.

many web billionaires (like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Paul Allen, etc.) already invest in (or start) new.space companies

thanks to the iPod and iPhone success Apple has $18 billion CASH, Microsoft wants spend $44 billion to buy Yahoo!

so, these (and other) big companies have enough money to buy NASA several times or just start a new "NASA 2.0"

then (maybe...) Apple & C. can help/save/restart NASA:

I take it you missed the Virgle announcement?

...starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars.

Yes and it was only funny because it is what we are all waiting for.

Have you ever heard someone buy a government agency?

And no, they don't "have enough money to buy NASA several times"

On the other hand I do think that Nasa should sell off its launch complexes and some R&D bits. They should move out of any non-exotic launch development or research.

I don't think NASA would mind doing that, compared to having to go to mars in a creamy white iShuttle or iCapsule with only one button that controls everything ;)

What was the deal with SpaceX? Did they lease, rent or buy?

Congratulations, you seem to have docked with another spacecraft. Please wait while all equipment and fuel is jettisoned.

You forgot "unlicenced" between "all" and "equipment"

As in "Congratulations, you have landed on the moon. Please be in court tomorrow as you have landed without purchasing the correct permits from the owners of your landing site from The Lunar Registry/The Moon Shop/The Lunar Embassy who all claim title."
