NEWS, COMMENTARY, DEBATE AND ACCESS TO FUTUREWORLD'S COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE BASE
I have long been in favour of commercial enterprise getting into the space transportation business in a primary way. I have watched the founding and development of SpaceX with keen interest, not only because their CEO Elon Musk is a fellow South African, but because I believe, like Richard Branson, that space is a great place for entrepreneurs to create their futures, while simultaneously advancing global technology.Ben Bova is an old-time space enthusiast and writer, and is greatly encouraged by the recent success of the SpaceX launch. His ultimate vision is a honeymoon hotel in orbit. An interesting idea, which we explored in a light-hearted MindBullet called PARIS HILTON OPENS THE STELLA FOR CHRISTMAS.But on a more serious note, space tourism is going to be big business in the future. Which dreamy-eyed teenager would NOT want to take a trip into space one day?
