Space Virgin

Babble on.

No, I am not referring to a new Heinlein novel. I am referring to the fact that governments will not hold a monopoly on manned space flight for much longer:

[Sir Richard] Branson announced that Virgin Group would begin offering space flights in 2007 for groups of up to five passengers. Passengers will pay up to £110,000 ($198,000) for the ride.

At least that gives me a target date to make my first million.

Babble off.

Update: Given NASA's current woes, the entry of private firms into this field looks more and more necessary.
