$200K For A Trip To Space? No Thanks, Americans Say

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' rocket company reportedly plans to charge passengers at least $200,000 for its first trips into space next year. But most Americans aren’t interested in taking the trip, even if they could afford the hefty ticket price.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of American Adults say, if they could afford it, they would travel into space on a commercial flight. Sixty-three percent (63%) would not, while 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
