Was the Jetsons Cartoon Prophetic? (part 4)

Space travel was part of life in The Jetsons, and the family sometimes visited the moon. Today, the option for commercial spaceflight is nearing reality, with companies like Virgin Galactic and Space X offering flights to the space station as early as 2017. The cost? A mere $250,000. Many have already reserved their seats! But the space station isn't the only possible destination, as talks for colonizing Mars become more and more serious each year. Projections are made that manned missions to Mars may occur before 2035, and plans are being developed for actual habitation. However, Elon Musk himself, the wealthy visionary behind Space X and the plans for the colonization of Mars, has said he doesn't want to be the first person on Mars because he doesn't want to die.
