And what's the point when the price tag to go on a trip is $200,000? Even if prices drop to $100,000 or $75,000....it still caters to no one but the rich and famous, and who really gives a fuck if they can go enjoy 15 seconds of weightlessness in space or not? I don't.

    I'm hoping it will work, and it will snowball into a huge industry until we get to the point where human Martians and human Lunar people are fighting for independence from Earth. It's a beautiful thing.

    I'm not calling it a waste of resources. If private companies wanna waste their money doing this, then fine....but don't think they're doing it in the interest of you, because they're not.

    I have no problem with Nasa, though I think there are problems with them too.

    I'm fully against space travel, NASA, caring about space, looking up at the stars, calling astronauts heroes...

    Well, duh. Any industry needs to make money. But why choose THIS industry? It doesn't seem like a great money-making venture to me. There are a ton of risks involved.

    I don't know. I do know its never gonna work. It's very risky, and I won't be surprised if something bad happens.

    Something bad will happen, but then they will pick up and go on. We have to colonize the ENTIRE UNIVERSE. GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY, God said. He said it, not me. heh.

    Too much $$$$ to go to the Moon. It takes too long just to get to Mars. Other planets are either too hot or too cold or just too far to get there.

    It is the begining of something, if it is successful than they will keep expanding. True it is risky but if you choose to go into space you should understand that risk already. When airtravel was first done by private companies it was the same thing just rich people flying for a few minutes. It then expanded to cover real air travel, again only for the rich. Now it is cheap enough for the common man to do it.

    Will it ever be that successful who knows, but this is the first step in that direction. Space travel for the middle class will probably not be possible in our lifetimes though but I wouldn't say never.

    I would say our kids have a good chance at seeing it happen, hell we finally got the Jet Packs that we were promissed in the 50's

    Martin Jetpack. Revealed in front of a crowd in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, this human transporter is technically defined by the FAA as an "experimental ultralight airplane, equipped with a gas-powered, V-4 piston engine and two ducted fans that provide the lift." Currently, the $100,000 machine can only hover for around 30 minutes and rise to 8,000 feet, and those who sign up to purchase one will first have to complete 15 hours of flight training as well as a "safety screening."

    just for clarification, the virgin galactic space flights weightless period is a hell of a lot longer than fifteen seconds.
    whoever said that was just making things up.
