Local eccentric businessman and shameless self-publicist Peter David Spoon has promised that he will provide sight-seeing trips to the newly discovered “Button” Moon within three weeks.
“We already have the spacecraft,” he claims, “as my wife bought it for my birthday back in 1981”. He also claims that a passenger service is viable sometime within the next six to eight months.
Spoon, who has formed the company “Spoon Galactic” to handle this venture remains confident that he can get off the ground sometime in the next two years, with a regular service operating by 2018.
“There are all manner of problems to overcome,” he admits, “but we should have some sort of service working by 2030. You can’t account for unexpected problems, after all this is Virgin territory.”
