Re: Billionaires in space

What earthbound mortals don’t seem to get is that any pilot, man, woman or bird, would like to fly higher and faster if possible, even as a passenger. As for the danger, picture yourself sitting at the head of the runway on your first solo flight, hand on the throttle wondering if you really can do this alone, then deciding to push it in. Nobody forgets that moment. Like your first kiss.


Saw somewhere someone posing the question are UFO's just billionaires from other planets?
