Interesting. I can't see sending 100 people at a time via rocket being price competitive with sending 500 at a time, even if it is much faster. I'm sure there will be rocket travel in the future for the wealthy, but it's not going to significantly replace commercial planes.

Perhaps we'll send Ripley (human proxy) to Mars in a decade, but I don't see people going for another 20 or so.
