Well, I'm glad you asked.
Here’s the key: “Reach low orbit and you’re halfway to anywhere in the Solar System.”, as the great Robert A. Heinlein famously said. There’s only one problem with that assertion, and that is it take an enormous amount of money to pull it off.
But before we can go courting the hard earned cash of the most affluent among us, we must first set up shop, which is to say, we must get our non-profit business license, and an animation showing what we have in mind, and so forth.
NMSTARG needs to crowdfund about $200,000 (USD), which in turn gets us the following:
To raise the needed cash, we will sell 2,000 tickets to ride on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo into space. Each ticket will cost $100.
No that is not a typo. We want to allow the people funding our endeavours to part of NewSpace history.
We believe that this price will also generate a LOT of publicity for what we wish to accomplish. And the more people find out about our plan, the more they like it.
