With all the happy talk about cool personal spaceflight there are two things you almost certainly will not hear at #ISPCS20191. how much the tickets will cost 2. when the rest of us non-rich people will get to fly pic.twitter.com/gs9VpVleFP— NASA Watch (@NASAWatch) October 9, 2019
Keith's note: The ISPCS - International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight - is being held this week. They do not webcast anything and other than tweets this event is held in an echo chamber with the usual suspects engaged in choir practice. Its great that all of these rides into space will soon be available for purchase. But so long as short suborbital hops cost as much as a house, several college educations, or two years of care for an Alzheimer's patient, this is just going to be a limited market catering to the elite. The only exception to this seems to be the SpaceX Starship ... let's see where that goes.
