Space travel is a dream for many "ordinary people". But it will never be fulfilled for 99.99 per cent of us due to the extremely unrealistic cost of each trip. Meraj Huda, Singaopore (Nov.7)
No, I don't think it will due to the high costs...only rich people/celebrities will be able to participate. Karen, Japan (Nov.8)
That is pure wishful thinking. The logistics of executing a succesful space mission are mind boggling and the cost astronomical. If we can't eradicate porverty with our available resources it would seem ludicrous to think that one day we would be space commuters since most still can't afford to pay for domestic flights even in their own countries.
