I think it's great that he has enough money to start a business that may rival NASA!

Did you know that one result of this new business area (Commercial Space Flight) is that a company is developing cargo ships that could take people and material to and from the International Space Station?

Right now the only thing we have that can do that is the Space Suttle, and NASA has no replacement for them in the works. They reach their age limit soon.
