Space Ramblings

Bah Humbug to Space Tourism

I’m really tired of seeing the parade of billionaires flying off into space at tens of millions a pop via the Russian space program for a few days and then coming back down to earth. If these people really wanted to contribute to growing a human presence in space, they would do far better to invest the millions they’ve wasted into building a genuine civilian for-profit space program that could eventually take them far higher than they’ve gone and give them the genuine legacy of helping to build a human legacy among the stars.

Instead all they do is pump more money into the defunct Cold War relic of the Russian space program and then return to earth having bought the privilege of a few days of weightlessness and little else.
