    Not sure where to put this, but it's official:

    NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station! We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality.

    It looks like Tom Cruise (and a small crew?) will be paying NASA to fly to the ISS to shoot a movie in space for real. He will either fly on Boeing's Starliner spacecraft or SpaceX's Dragon V2 spacecraft.
    One wonders how much this is costing, but it should hopefully fund a lot of things and inspire generations as per above.
    Tom Cruise is currently 57 years old.

    Musk also has that Japanese billionaire on board for that Moon flyby.
    These are just the next logical steps in the commercial funding of space exploration?
