NASA vs. Blue Origin vs. Space X vs. Virgin Galactic...

inspired by the comments on todays podcast, i'll turn this on the great people Buzztown - which do you think is best for being cooler or most noble or funner, etc.

NASA - aeronautics/space industry research juggernaut with largest fleet of research aerospace craft on Earth

Virgin Galactic - Upcoming spaceline with crafts designed and built by award winning aerospace engineers and fine pilots. A start up for space tourism/exploration for the common man...but right now it's just for the rich and adventurous people...

Space X - Start-up creating cheap, reliable access to put cargo in orbit. kinda like southwest airlines, except for unmanned Earth satellites

Blue Origin - just like Virgin Galactic, but without the awards and they're not quite as far along in their testing. Stong links to

or suggest another ESA, ISRO, China's space program, JP Aerospace, etc.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
