Submission + - Private Space Shuttle flights->

An anonymous reader writes: It has recently been suggested that when the Space Shuttle retires after its final flights this year, it may continue operations under the funding of private enterprise. United Space Alliance is considering a $1.5 billion a year proposal to take the fleet private. The ageing spacecraft has been flying for more around 30 years, and NASA are retiring it for a good reason. Is it safe to continue flights in private hands?
