Interesting Thought on Aerospace/Space Tourism 2003 Jan 02

Manned spaceflight is a government monopoly – and has been one for over 40 years. The marketplace has never been allowed to exist, and as a result, the dream of private tickets for a ride to orbit has all but died here in the US. Two tickets have been purchased, much to the chagrin of the Federalies. Both purchased rides in Russian spacecraft. It is a darn shame that the only capitalists for manned space travel are former Soviets.
