I think Tito is a true pioneer.

We all know that the only way that space exploration will ever be successful or do anything cool will be if it gets adequate funding. The best way to do this is through tourism. And of course, the best way to do that is to make stuff like space stations look like space stations are supposed to look.

I mean, what does it take? It's not hard. Just slap up some moulded plastic here and there, put some neat sound effects in when doors open and close. Get those stupid dangling wires behind a wall. Give the onboard computers names and have the astronauts talk to them. Make the suits cooler, like the ones in 2001: A Space Oddysey. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Tito is the thin edge of the wedge. A few years from now, there could be honeymoon flights.

Then they can afford to build station/resorts on the moon, Mars and eventually Europa.
