Talk about a trip of a lifetime! I'd love to be one of those passengers, preferably after they make several trips without incident.

Yea but if you look on the plus side, what a way to go.

Also, you have a higher chance of dying in a car crash than in a space shuttle .... or is that about planes? O.o

I consider myself a bit of Elon's fan so I wish they succeed. But I also feel the extreme risk involved. Imagine if the first passengers died. That would be the end of SpaceX and it's multi billion investment...

And I certainly wouldn't fly there as a pioneer, only after it has been well used for a while

If you think about the amount of people who have traveled in a Space Shuttle vs people who have died while doing it, DEFINITELY higher chance of dying in a Space Shuttle.

That's not technically true. Plenty of things have famously gone wrong in space travel not resulting in death. Apollo 13, Mir crash, cracked shuttle windows, aborted launches etc.

None of this will put some people off. Even though the cost will be huge, there will be hundreds if not thousands of people queuing up for this trip.
