Space Travel

Moon trips at $100 million a pop are the predicted offering of Space Adventures. Yep, in just a few years they say they’ll be rocketing people around the dark side of the moon.

But I predict that before this becomes a commercially viable business, it will disappear for lack of cheap energy. It’s almost certain that the only space travel humans will be doing in the future is through science fiction novels.

Further, inauguration of the International Space Station was supposed to mark the moment in time after which there would always be a human presence in space, but I predict that in a few years the ISS will become an uninhabited hulk orbiting a planet beset by energy wars.
