D.D. Harriman, Call Your Office!

CNN reports that the U.S. government has granted permission for the first commercial flight to the moon.
The company involved is TransOrbital Inc., whose website says:
“TransOrbital Inc. is a private company dedicated to the commercial development of space. We are on track to be the first commercial mission to the moon and currently have three Lunar launch projects in progress. Our first mission, TrailBlazerTM, is scheduled for launch in 2003.”
Hmph!
Interestingly, one department that the CNN story says endorsed the trip was the U.S. State Department.
Did they have to check and see if the visit might offend the “Moonie Street” first?
Some lunar craters that needed appeasing, perhaps?
Oh nevermind…
