it was closer to 145 years between the montgolfier brothers' balloon and the first commercial passenger airships, and yes balloons are comparable in air travel to rockets for space travel (primitive yet effective technology). it wasnt until shortly after passenger air service became a thing, that aviation advanced dramatically and the airplane came out on top as the primary form of air travel. we are seeing the beginnings of commercial space travel now, which i'd say is about half the time it took aviation to reach a similar level. the innovation from this point on will be exponential (and cost will decrease likewise over decades), just as it was with aviation.

this is exactly right, and the media is assisting them in this grand distraction.
If you want congressmen to take your opinion seriously, you need to speak in the only language they understand... Campaign contributions, kickdowns and post-office job promises
