Re: Extraterrestrial colony companies

I put the break even price at about 3500 dollars for 65 seats. Is it worth 3 hours of your time? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but most definably cheaper than the concord. A transatlantic flight required the high-maintenance concord aircraft to gulp jet fuel at the rate of one ton per seat, and the average round-trip p...
