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.
