The idea of it is awesome-the reality, no. I'm scared enough in a regular plane.

Plus drinking recycled urine-I'm all for recycling and doing my part for the environment but come on. And just the going to the bathroom issues

I actually have zero desire to go into space; there are too many places here on earth that I haven't seen yet and would love to see first.

It all depends what we mean by 'space', doesn't it guys? If we're talking about the local neighbourhood, well we do pretty much know what is there already. If we're talking much further afield, well that's a whole other matter. I guess I'll wait until the engineering problems are overcome.

I love it when people say there's no aliens. Not because I necessarily think they are a dime a dozen the way they in are programs like Doctor Who or Star Trek, but because our sights are awfully limited at this point. We just don't know. We need to consider the possibility of other life forms that are below us in development. What if we are the first?

Now how would we go about detecting an intelligent civilisation on, fuck I don't know, one of those planetary systems they're picking up in recent years... but one which was at a sort of ancient-Egypt stage. They're hardly going to be generating much noise.

It would be way cool to go but I also get motion sickness easily. So I don't think it will happen. However I have a bit of for space!

None of this stuff would exist without the space program. Waste of money? Hell, we should be investing more into it.

I'd go, just to see the beautiful views of the world. Plus, see the Great Wall from space, which would be cool.

Anything I need to know from outer space can be transmitted to me through David Bowie's nipple.

I took a tour of a submarine. it was very confining.

no interest for me.

living on the moon or in a space station would not be much fun.

If i could go without any of the danger or the extreme G-force, than yea- I would in a heartbeat. It would be an incredible experience.

Cool to see the original will be the outro song. Love 70s Elton John.

I spend enough time in space here on earth.
