Hi folks Every body

Hi Every body, Just registered with forum.spaceagemag.com. I am thinking this is actually the proper place to discuss our ideas and as well as views. Anyway is "Space business" is the best suited place to posting introduction topic?

Well, there's a new idea. People have been wondering about ways in which private businesses could make money in space - in other words, how can the profit motive be harnessed to the cause of space exploration? Space tourism is one obvious way; maybe you've just thought of another! :lol:

I imagine a Bigelow inflatable space station with regular rockets arriving bringing jaded, decadent but extremely rich men for a zero-gravity thrill that they simply can't get on earth. I'm sure that there would be takers. Of course, it wouldn't be a very discrete brothel, given the publicity that private space travellers generally attract, and attempting to shin down the fire escape to evade police raids would frankly be deeply unwise. Also, private astronauts generally have to undergo a training programme on Earth first, and I'm not sure what that would involve in this case.

On second thoughts I'm not sure this is the image that the new frontier really needs. It isn't the Wild West, after all. :lol:

But it will be, once the respectable, need to mind the political constituents back home, governmental space activity gets pushing out of the way.

Man takes all of his "sins" with him where ever he goes. The hundred mile club baby! :mrgreen:
