Ads in space would be unacceptable, and I think even those CEO's realize that... The point I'm making is that the space race is gearing up again.

The only difference this time is it won't simply be country pitted against country. It will be the corporations fighting each other. Honestly, it is the ONLY way for us to actually REACH the stars, as a race.

Our governments won't sink the ludicrous amount of money it would take to start up these types of ventures... but think of the deep pockets of these companies.

JUST THINK ABOUT IT!

Yes, I have no doubt that the combined funds of Cameron and Google is enough to send a small army into space. i don't think I'd have as much as a beef with this story if they were going into space for research, or even to film. Its just the promise of "billions added to the GDP." That makes me fishy. They arn't claiming to be passengers in space like Lance Bass and Bill Gates wanted to. They are claiming that not only are they qualified to be astronauts, they are somehow going to find tons of money up there. Its just strange. I understand the appeal of going to space, it would be a trip to make a lifetime.

Okay, so you have a problem with them mining asteroids to gain more resources for the planet?

We ARE starting to realize the finite amount of materials here on earth are dwindling...
