Years back I have written about Space travel for the people, Inc., an hypothetical future “newspace” company, implementing the idea I nurtured in my head of allowing the regular nine-to-five folks to go to space through lottery.
It is a great pleasure to let you, my 7 loyal readers, know that such business was finally born.
I will keep this post short and to the point – I Dream Of Space, a New Zealand-based start up, headed by the charismatic Reuben Metcalfe, is doing it. Launched in November last year it have already gotten some traction with the internet community, as evidenced by the latest news piece on Wired Science. And now, following an interesting exchange of ideas with Reuben, I am honored to join him and his team by officially become an advisor for I Dream Of Space project.
Space is the final frontier, so beam me up, Reuben, and lets make it happen.
