January 1, 1914, the date of the first commercial flight. The St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line flew 1 passenger and a pilot, 34 KM across a bay in 23 minutes. The plane was made of wood, fabric and wire. Today, after 98 years, arguably the length of a lifetime, there are approximately 93,000 commercial airplane flights in 9,000 airports with 30 million plus passengers around the world.

On April 21, 2008, Dennis Tito became the first space tourist when he boarded a Russian Soyuz rocket and flew 315 KMs to reach the International Space Station. That day was the birth of commercial spaceflight.

The game is afoot.
