Ponderosa Steak Houses in the late 1960s – 70s purchased the first spot on the first space station for a restaurant, but time ran out before it could even be started in construction. It was a good idea, though, and 40 years later, there will be that restaurant in space – in a hotel, but it will not a Ponderosa.

Related to this, new lines of work are emerging very quickly during the Obama Administration, but began well before the Ansari X Prize was first awarded in 2004.  The Mars Society has long advocated for space exploration by private as well as government agencies and it is coming ever closer to this realization.  

America, right now, has almost a dozen SPACEPORTS. A major runway at Spaceport America in New Mexico will be completed in about 9 months. Half a dozen spacecraft design companies have already perfected some models and are ready to profit form the lucrative Space Tourism and Privatized Space Freight industry sectors beginning in 2012 with the new space hotel to open at that time.
