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.
