Private Space Shuttles

Post this interesting topic for a short writing assignment:

"There has been talk of being able to orbit the Earth in private space shuttles. When this becomes an option, would it be something you would want to do? Consider some of the problems the Space Program & NASA have been having, and the preparations you would have to undergo (i.e. gravity training). Explain your reasoning."
