when there are margaritas on the moon

Google co-founder Sergey Brin has paid $5 million to reserve a seat on a future flight to the International Space Station. See here.

I dunno. Space as a vacation destination? Perhaps you need to be a space nut to understand the appeal, but it seems eccentric to me.

Of course, if technology were to make these adventures more accessible to the public AND those private space exploration companies launched loads of alcohol and Jimmy Buffet to the moon AND designed a space suit that didn’t make my butt look fat – I might change my mind.
