Some of us really enjoy flying on an airplane, and some are terrified of it. But what if we told you commercial flights were traveling to new heights? I imagine every child has, at one point or another, dreamed of going to space. Experiencing the liftoff, the view, and the zero gravity!(Lisa and Richie talk about their thoughts on traveling to space) Recently Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos have had something of a personal space race to get the first commercial spacecraft into the stars. Who got up there first is trivial though, when you realize that in your lifetime, if you wanted to go to space, you could!

Bush Administration.
