This is exciting. I would love to do this. Private companies are the hope for future space exploration I feel. It's hard for governments to justify the kind of money required to really do it justice. If private companies can find ways to make money they can continue to expand their space exploration. Eventually they will find something of enough value that they will be able to have the resources to go all out.

Kyrroeth,

This is something I'd like to do too. Heck, I said in a different post I'd like to help colonize Mars! I think I was born about 400 years too late. I should have been one of the original explorers back in the 1600s. Or perhaps I'm just living out a past life?!? rolleyes.

I remember that. It's too bad. You were born 400 years too late or maybe 100 years too early. We are just in a period now where the entire earth has been explored and we haven't committed to the exploration of space yet.

Kyrroeth, to be fair there is still a vast ocean that hasn't been explored or settled on Earth yet, but all land masses have been explored.

I would enjoy flying in space, but I can't imagine how much that must cost right now. The rockets are prohibitively expensive, so unless this mission is just taking a side trip around the moon for the passengers, but really delivering a payload or something, it would be ludicrously expensive.

What a change in the way we do things. To have a private company launch what is probably a highly classified satellite is such a departure from the way we did things in the past.

I don't think it is that big of a problem. There is no way to hide that there is a satellite in space anymore. With all the monitoring we do of our airspaces as soon as anyone has a rocket take off, we know its trajectory and likely destination. The only thing then that can be classified is what the satellite is doing and/or what is aboard the satellite. Even though a private company is launching and placing the satellite in space, its actual objective and what is contained inside aren't necessarily known. Sure they say it is for better precision and navigation, but the government isn't always upfront about everything they do. It could still be a highly classified satellite or mission.
