ATLANTA (CNN) -- A radically different way to reach outer space - the space elevator - may finally be getting off the ground floor thanks to recent huge advances in technology, creating the possibility of affordable space exploration and tourism. (Full story)

Could commercial enterprise and private funding provide the main source for space exploration in the future?

I believe, much more funds will be needed from sources other than the two listed in the article. But I believe private funding could play a very great role, as there are many individuals, who like Richard Brandson, can invest much in the exploration of space for the future.

Sooner or later it will happen, like the old saying goes: "A visionary is a person able to turin their dream into a profitable reality."
