If it were inexpensive and available, would you go on a trip to the moon or outerspace?

Asked by Zen (7738points) June 20th, 2009

You hear about it becoming more and more as a possibility – space tourism is still a small fortune, but what if you could go? Would you welcome the opportunity, or perhaps you have fear of heights, or cramped spaces, or just shooting into the air at a kazillion miles an hour? Would you go?

Certainly. If it were affordable, I think everyone should see the planet from orbit at least once.

I’d rather explore the plant earth first.

I’d rather see where the galaxies are because alot of people have already been on the moon

To infinity and beyond? Of course I’d go.

No. Space travel is not something I think our government should be spending our tax dollars on when they are talking about doing away with Medicare and Medicaid due to the rising cost of health care. If they would stop wasting money on sending a spacecraft to mars to see if there is water and spend it here, we wouldn’t have so many elderly people without insurance. Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

@chyna I hear you.

Sorry to go off on that tangent, Zen. That wasn’t your question.

Zen's avatar

@chyna It’s okay. I’ve often thought of that, especially after seeing a special on Africa.

Yep, that would be nice, and I want a Deathstar aswell… both are just as probable in my lifetime…

Naw, I bet its like the airlines, the food probably downright sucks!

hells. yes. it’s my dream to go into outer space, but considering how hard it is to become an astronaut if something commercial were to become available I wouldn’t think twice about taking the opportunity.

I’d love to sit at the shore of one of Titan’s liquid hydrocarbon lakes watching puffy methane clouds floating by. What a sight! Should have brought my digital camera.
