Rae Paoletta wrote about the importance of good financial planning:

  • According to Betterment, an automated investing service, 22 people have already set up accounts to save for a trip to Outer Space.
  • A couple of those accounts are set up to gather $1,000 a month, and one has even managed to amass $60,000 for the purpose.
  • Elon Musk has promised a trip to Mars for the bargain price of just $200,000 in the coming years.
  • If you want to start planning early, Paoletta estimates that if you set aside $263 a month, and assume standard market returns, you’ll be ready to take off in 30 years.
