Space: The Final (Commercial/Tourist) Frontier

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo (or VSS Enterprise) is looking mighty good to begin passenger tourist service in 2014. I never would have imagined that, in the span of my lifetime, 1) America's official government space program would dwindle to this point, and 2) an international commercial tourist service (for very wealthy people, of course) would take off. All social commentary aside, I admit I'm impressed.

If you have any doubt that it's truly a commercial venture, watch this, um, commercial for Virgin Galactic. (Scaled for medium large display.)
