PayPal Galactic Means You Can Finally Make Payments While Traveling to Mars

Sometimes “where on earth…” just doesn’t cut it. I’m talking about buying digital music, paying for ebooks, and catching up on terrestrial bills while planet-hopping. Now there’s Paypal Galactic, who can provide the perfect solution for these interstellar financial transactions. Naturally, space experts like the SETI Institute and former astronaut, Buzz Aldrin are also involved.

Creating a secure and functional commerce system that can operate in space at scale will not be easy, but with the support of the scientific community, other technology companies and the public at large, we hope to find the solutions to address these challenges. This is just the beginning. Specific details still need to be addressed, and we look forward to keeping you updated with our progress and to the day when we are truly able to make space a commercial reality.
