Orbital Vacation

Excalibur Almaz has announced they're on track to offer commercial manned orbital spaceflight, possibly as soon as 2013.

I'd noticed EA in the past -- they are, interestingly enough, incorporated on the Isle of Man -- but hadn't heard much until now. Commercial passenger travel to orbit! Hooray!

...Even if it is gonna make keeping the Hidden Frontier hidden even more of a problem.

Into orbit? No kidding. I can only imagine what that would cost. Then again flying across the ocean was once unimaginably expensive too, even if in that case there was good reason to do it.

Why keep it hidden, again? I mean, I wanna get off this rock!
