Now, this is quite a cool endeavour!
Too bad we are not hearing much of it thru the major media sources. Things seem to be nominal and working well.
This is cheaper, quicker and offers great possibilites over the ISS...although I am still fond of the Skylabs.
I wonder what the plan is for micro-meteor impacts or solar radiation?

I'm quite fond of this venture. Over time, the price to visit will drop (as innovations kick in to lower the price). This means that, with compounding interest, one could start tucking money aside now for this trip and be pretty well guaranteed of actually seeing space.
That's fricken awesome.
