So...just for the sake of the argument: Would you ever pay (especially online...) for a space travel or book a reservation at a space hotel? Something like this guy (Sir Richard Branson): http://virgingalactic.com http://www.virgingalactic.com/booking/ The prices seem too high though. So...they want $200,000 USD for a simple space flight and they claim a number of 300 customers so far. What if...they wanted say 10 times less and offer a "space hotel" in orbit, something like this: http://scienceblogs.com/startswitha..._am_dissatisfied_with_nas/Space_Station_V.jpg (ok this seems more like star trek...but you got the idea...). - would they sell it to you then? 10x!
