Skittles is giving away a zero gravity flight to test out limited 'Zero-G' candies

Oh Brother!!!!! First the Chinese have "one upmanship" gourmet food on their Space Station. Next Mr. Bezos passes out Skittles to his crew on their "Look people, Space is FUN" rich man's joy ride. And next on the "yum yum" agenda is a Skittles "catch and gobble" contest during a zero gravity flight. For me, the Space program(s) and attendant technologies are/were touched by the magical "Glitter of the Stars". This commercialization of Space exploration seems crass, plebian and as vapidly mundane as most prime time television. The dreams as well as the challenges and dangers of Space exploration are deadly serious and should be treated as such. Nature always has the final say.
