Writing the rules for space tourism

The U.S. government may have more serious security concerns than it can handle, but that won't stop it from contriving rules to regulate that which does not yet exist. The Associated Press reports that the FAA has published a novella of proposed regulations governing the future of space tourism. "Final" regulations are due in June, 2006, governing everything from medical standards to preflight training requirements. Richard Branson must be thrilled to learn they have it all figured out.
