"It Will Be Humbling. It Will Be Spiritual."

Virgin Galactic (gotta love that name) will begin commercial space flights in 2008. A seat on the spaceship can be reserved for a refundable deposit of $20,000, which will be applied to your total ticket price of $200,000. The maiden Virgin Galactic craft will be the VSS (Virgin Spaceship) Enterprise. No word on transporter beams and universal translators.
Thanks, Monkey, for the link.

My guess is when this actually happens, they'll use the Nixon strategy of preparing loss statements before the thing even blasts off the ground. "Mrs. Hudwimple was a simple woman who loved to putter around the garden and tend to her one thousand grand children. It is a great tragedy and we mourn your loss..."

" . . . and as soon as her ashes hit the ground, we'll blast them right back into space, James Doohan-style."

I think everyone should be able to write their own: "Jimmy, women wanted him, men envied him, children wanted to be him . . ."
