Mr Bass apparently needs to pay $20,000,000.00 to get a place on the
craft. Now that he is not going, they are replacing him with a cargo
container. Nice to see a selfless young man attempt to better the human
condition, rather than metaphorically pissing away what didn't take any
skill on his part to gain in the first place.</cynic>
