|"Hip Hip Hooray! Oh Chap. That was another giant step for humankinds efforts to reach out and touch the stars. I applaud your accomplishments and look forward to seeing and hearing about the many more that you and your team members successfully do.I can't wait to see the next spaceshipone model which will have ramjet engines strapped to its sides so it can land and take off from any airport on this or any other planet. Then again maybe harrier jet engines and or capabilities would be better or both. Food for thought though.Anyway Congradulation's and keep up the good work!"

|"Saw a tour of the International Space Station on NASA TV recently. It looked terrible - no place you would want to live or even visit if it were not for weighlessness and the spectacular view of the Earth. Who would really like to visit, much less live in, a cramped place full of boxes, lab equipment and lots of loose floating wires? Wish those of us interested in Space Tourism (especially multi-millionaire types could and would donate money to build a “Rest and Relaxation Module” for the International Space Station which would not only benefit current astronauts and cosmonauts but also serve as the prototype for one of many “Guest Modules” of a Hotel in Space to be built in the future. This “Rest and Relaxation Module would look very similar to a guest room in an average American home with (blow-up but realistic looking) sofas, chairs, tables, lamps, pictures, a HDTV, a large picture window and of course a bubble window in which a person could experience floating in space without a cumbersome spacesuit. Preferably this “Rest and Relaxation Module” would be designed by those associated with the Disney Corporation or the special effects department of the movie “2001: A space Odyssey” i.e. people who know what the inside of a Space Station is suppose to look like! Certainly such a “R & R Module” would inspire the public and increase interest in Space Tourism. Thanks."
