This will help pave the way to possible citizen space flights in the future hopefully.

SS, what's your take on these disgustingly rich folks wanting and going into space?

I think it is his money and he can do with it as he pleases. If he wants to go into space and is willing to take the risks and can provide the way to do it, then fine. He should not expect others to do something that he is not willing to do himself. I can understand what a challenge this probably is for Branson and others and why they enjoy a challenge.

In my opinion, the money could be spent better on other things (such as helping to feed the needy, providing shelter for the homeless, and medical care, etc., etc., etc. Even though the USA is a wonderful place, there are too many homeless people who have no where to call home, and too many people that do not have enough to eat, and too many people who cannot afford medical care, etc. Money could make all the difference in so many lives. It is not just in the USA either but in many countries around the world.

Yes space travel is very important but so are the lives of the suffering here on Earth now.

JMHO!
