PayPal to Launch In-Space Payment

Everyone can finally stop stressing out about how we’ll be able to pay for things once space travel becomes a thing, because PayPal has a plan. The online payment service has created the PayPal Galactic project “to help make universal space payments a reality.” It might sound like PayPal is getting a little ahead of itself, but the first space hotel is in the works to begin orbiting the planet in the next few years, and it’s not like food and souvenirs are just going to become free once you exit Earth’s atmosphere. “Space tourism is opening up to all of us in the next decade or so, and we want to make sure that PayPal is the preferred way to pay from space and in space,” announced PayPal president David Marcus.
