I saw on the new that anyone with 100 million dollars can take a trip to outerspace to see the moon. Many people have done this, buissness owners, rich corporate guys, ect.

I dont think many of you will feel the same but I think this is stupid and sickening. I don't think they know how many starving children could be fed and helped and get medical care. This is a terrable waste of money, if they want a crappy they can go to disneyland. I know, I know, people can spend their money however they please but seriously 100 million dollars for an hour in space. This makes me sad. So many poor children and other problems could be fixed.


What do you think?

I just watched it on the 11:00 news. Its 100 million dollars. They showed some C.E.O of some big company floating around in a shuttle.

Its not about the amount its about the waste of money.

Maybe they choose to spend their money for themselves?

I fully expect you to never buy anything beyond what you need to survive, and give the rest of your money to charity.

All of your money you spent on paintball, on other things you didnt really need to have.

"I would say its a waste because starving children could be saved."


Sell everything you don't need, and see why we feel the way we feel.


It's their money, let them spend it.

yea i agree but its a huge amount that could save hundreds of people. I agree with the whole its their money let them spend it however they want. but i think the goverment should spend less money on space exploration and more on helping people and helping cure cancer and aids and whatnot.

Ok... So, you dont want people to spend their money to go to space, but you dont want the government to use tax money to cure stuff.

So you can spend your excess money however you want, but a highly succesful CEO must donate all his money to some cause that you wish to champion from his pocket?
