Personally I think this is fantastic, space tourism should be encouraged by everyone. This is because being up there might give more people an overpowering realization that yes, for all practical purposes, there really is only one earth; we better not screw it up too badly. People that can afford to be space tourists are people with a lot of influence. Bring on the space tourists!
