    Putting people into low earth orbit is not hard, and is not science. It is pretty cool technology, but, then, so is this computer I'm using.

    The real science is still being done by NASA, and it is way cooler than sending millionaires for a joyride into the bottom reaches of space.

    For example, within a decade, we should have a satellite capable of detecting earth-like planets circling nearby stars. We've detected over 100 gas super-giants, but this new satellite will allow us to detect planets where earth-like life could evolve.
