Thread: First Civilian Trip Into Space,

  1. #1
    Article here.

    So, what do you think. Will this be successful and bring in a new era for space travel/exploration?

    It would be a great thing if it works. Maybe it could bring peoples focus into other areas and help us to begin working together towards new goals.

    Spending about $40 million (so I heard) to win a $10 million prize.

    With a business plan like that, it'll never get off the ground.

    There's the rub, TD.

    If it's successful, will the government allow it to flourish or regulate it into non-feasability?

    The latter, I expect.

    Well they did it. Link

    Now we just wait and see and hope for the best. Although I can't believe they really expect to be able to give $10.00 trips into outer space. I can't even get to the next town in a taxi for that much.

    Gives new meaning to the mile-high club.

    Hell, I can't even get across town on a $10 taxi, let alone trying to get from one town to another.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    You wouldn't want to try their method anyway, imagine having to start your journey suspended under the taxi.

    I think this is quite the deal.

    I just hope it can eventually be done on a true privateer basis, without interference.

    My hopes aren't high.

    Well done, nonetheless.

    I thought commercial supersonic flight was banned in continental US airspace. :-"
