Yes, Umber, I'm sure about it. I'm only curious to know how they plan to make money. The initial investment is very high and so are the running costs. They need to hire and train highly specialized personel without counting how much money they'll burn everytime a test goes wrong. You said they can offer their services to governments. Can be but the developed countries usually have national space agencies and the others just don't have the money. I don't know. I'm not saying that SpaceX will never get profits but only that I still don't understand where those profits will come from.

Anything novel is usually very expensive. Give it another 100 years, maybe much less and getting into space will be as cheap as a plane ticket is now to get to another state.

Yes, that can be an explanation. Maybe at SpaceX they are betting on a similar scenario and probably they are actually only investing in experience and marketing. Risky. But every new market brings high risks with the promise of big profits.

If I were super rich and this trip included space walking then I would probably go with the expense but just watching through a window doesn't seem worth it to me.
