What he's talking about is an 80% saving on rocket fuel costs which space scientists are taking very seriously. The catch is that the journey will take at least two years, it's only one way, and it will be using an orbiting pattern that's never been tried before.

Virtual reality TV studios are on the brink of becoming a mainstream tool of television production. One day, VR sets will look so real that you won't be able to distinguish between the computer generated scenery and reality. We take a peak at this dazzling new technology.
