Jim Clash, a journalist who has bought a $200,000 ticket to fly with Galactic, tells Mashable he’s not going to abandon the plan to travel to space after the crash of SpaceShipTwo. Clash:
If you’re gonna go for something worthwhile there’s risk and some people are gonna die. We all hope it is not us. Rocket science is hard, it’s not easy.
He doesn’t know whether the other approximately 700 ticketholders will feel the same:
It’s too early to tell, we have to see where the investigation goes. There’s about 700 of us out there. My guess is there are probably some who feel they will stick with the program, maybe others won’t.
