Would you choose to go anywhere on Earth, or out in space?

Asked by stump (3835points) February 23rd, 2010

If you were given the choice of a vacation anywhere on Earth for as long as you like, or to go to the international space station and/or the Moon, which would you choose?

I would rather keep my feet on the ground and vacation here on earth. I will let the photos from space suffice for any vacation there.

The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that I would undoubtedly choose a visit to the ISS.
– Zero G
– Spacewalk
– Seeing Terra from space with your own eyes will be an almost religious experience.
– A once in a lifetime event for a normal human being of this century.

You couldn’t pay me to step foot into a spaceship. I’m claustrophobic.

New Zealand, here I come.

Earth…drop me off in the Northern Cascades with a Swiss Army knife and let the vacation never end!!

I’m already in space!

I’ll stay here. Until I finish everything on my itinerary, I’m not adding yet another item. I’ll start with Nepal.

At one time in my life I would have chosen space, but now I would pick Figi.

@BoBo1946 No comment…lol

I will stick with earth, seeing as I’m spacey half the time, Saturn no longer holds an interest. So France, here I come.

I’d probably stay here on the Big Blue Marble although a trip into space might end up being a once in a lifetime experience. Still, Tahiti would be nice this time of year and I am overdue for some surfing lessons.

I feel like there’s more to do here, on Earth, for us Earthlings. The dining, nightlife, people, culture, weather conditions, gravity, cost, adaptability, and chances of surviving are much better on the marble than off.

Space would be cool, but there’s no way I’d pass up a trip to Antarctica.

stump's avatar

But you have your whole life to explore Earth. How often go you get a chance to go into space?

mrentropy's avatar

I would really like to go to Mars. Give me a spade and drop me off in the Cydonia region for a few days and I’d be happy as a clam. Assuming clams are happy.

International space station, but I here it gets a bit smelly up there.

Uranus, well Beyonce’s anyway.I like big butts & I cannot lie.

CMaz's avatar

@ucme – Why do I like that answer? lol

BoBo1946's avatar

@ucme yeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

LuckyGuy's avatar

I’d do anything for a two week vacation on the moon or ISS.

BoBo1946's avatar

@worriedguy what would you do?

ucme's avatar

@ChazMaz Probably because like me you’re a red blooded male who admires the finer things in life.

CMaz's avatar

I think it is the word “Uranus”.

ucme's avatar

Well that was a gimme.

mrentropy's avatar

I thought they changed it to “Urectum?”

ucme's avatar

Don’t be a venus!

BoBo1946's avatar

loll…..not mine!

I’ve seen too much of the world already, usually the undeveloped and violent parts. There’s no place like home. Unless the US turns into a facist theocracy, in which case Canada, New Zealand or Iceland as a place of exile.

CMaz's avatar

@stranger_in_a_strange_land – I like how you think.

candide's avatar

jellyfish don’t do space travel – this planet is my life bubble; I’m not going to leave it!

PhillyCheese's avatar

I’ll stick with earth

antimatter's avatar

Alpha Century a Grey told me they got nice beaches, (Just kidding.) Orion Nub ala, Mount Olympus on Mars, IO, the other planets and the moon. Why do want to see Earth anyway if you could travel amongst the stars!

antimatter's avatar

Anywhere in space would be cool. I always wanted to go to the moon and drive that little moon buggy car. On Mars I would like to test my quad bike. On IO I would like to see the ice. It’s nice to dream @stump and boldly go where no man has gone before.

PacificToast's avatar

I’d like to travel all over earth, but space can wait. We can’t survive out there naturally after all.
