Possibility of passenger space flights?

I'm thinkin maybe 2020 - 2030 might be a good age for space tourism, more employment perhaps? more training to pay for too haha

Its not that far off, think about how much has changed in the last 20 years.

I'd be up for it anyway.

Seems completely feasible to me.

Starting with Virgin Galactic, and space ship one, they're looking to get two people at a time into orbit and back. I know Branson has been trying to get a module on the international space station as a form of Hotel.

NASA is also starting to try and push space exploration and colonisation of neighbouring planets/orbiting bodies.

NASA - Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle
Starting with the moon by 2020, I heard that a modification of the Orion design will allow transport to Mars. I think they were talking about 2050 for the Mars trip though. The idea being a base on the moon with the additional modules then departure to Mars from the moon base.

It's still quite expensive though.
