Don't get me wrong, I think it is great, and I am all for new tech...but some one needs to fill me in.
I think most people are facinated with the idea of actually being able to go to space. Lets face it not everyone can make it to be astronaught (or however you spell it) This give the common person (I am sure rich common person) the ability to be able to actually be able to go to space. Other then that
