Totally baffled why there is even an issue/question over this. President Kennedy challenged the nation to send a man to the moon and return him safely before that decade was completed. We went not because it was easy, but it was hard. Far too complex/expensive for any privately-funded enterprise to accomplish such an ambitious task so the government "built it".
