    “It would be the first private mission to space with all fare-paying participants and the first private mission utilizing all American developed space technology.”

    The first all tourist fight into orbit, quite a high orbit too... No mention of price but I reckon probably in the 10s of million range, NASA is paying about $50 million per seat but they may be able to do it cheaper for a quick tourist fight. Looks like we may not have long to wait and see as it could happen in a year or so!
