A pipe with some fuel in it, that goes to the same place at the same speed as 60 years ago? This is what excites you?
My direct flight to Australia from California in about 13 hours is just a boring rerun of Magellan's voyage, then?
Are you saying your flight will be more newsworthy than Magellan's voyage? Now where's that TSA tip line... Also, I didn't know Magellan was Santa's half brother, 13 hours to sail halfway around the world I think you need some magic mermaids to pull your boat. Yes, the GP is kinda trolling but still... Musk is still putting cargo and satellites in orbit, I guess doing that cheaper is nice but if that was all we wouldn't care much. It's his ambitions for Mars that get people excited, but those are still way in the future. And he's "just" the transport company, we still need someone to fund the entire mission.
