So Richard Branson just became the first of the three billionaires with private space enterprises to rocket into orbit this year. Bezos will be next up. Pretty cool, actually but something rankles just the same.

What do you think? An exciting new age of space entrepreneuring or rich kids showing off their new toys?

So many problems that need solving down here on Earth that could be addressed with that kind of money but still.


Apart from the quarter million you would need to fly into space on Virgin, Branson is supposedly going to donate tickets to charity so that us commoners have a shot or it.

Would you pony up a quarter million to go for a spin in orbit for a few minutes?
