Investment capital began to pour into the new commercial spaceflight industry. Richard Bransons VirginGalactic will begin ferrying space tourists out of the atmosphere in 2010.

Las Vegas hotelier Robert Bigelow is developing the worlds first commercial space station (i.e., space hotel). These space entrepreneurs, including Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen and Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, now see space as the next big thing.In Rocketeers, Michael Belfiore goes behind the scenes of this nascent industry, capturing its wild-west, anything-goes flavor.
