Neither a singer nor an astronaut I, but yet I purvey these opinions. It seems that space has been a dream of the holiday maker for many a year. It is only right therefore that the first such beast to sample it be somebody who has no (I guess, I don't know) particular astronomical/logical expertise. It would be stupid to send somebody such as John Glen (though he did a similar thing, right?) so they go for a nincompoop fool. Just think of the publicity.
In answer to the question, we live in a world that is getting ever more greedy and cynical.

|Publicity is not what human space flight needs. Money is. The Russians, not having had any fatal spacecraft blow-ups featuring civilian passengers (cough! cough!) are willing to take them along if they pay the big bucks (or the royal rubles, or whatever). They have already had at least one civilian passenger, and I believe there are a couple of other Americans in training who are rich but not famous.|
