British billionaire Richard Branson's commercial space venture Virgin Galactic got one step closer to carrying tourists into space. I'll join in the lottery. If I win, will give my ticket away. Going up that far in space, is scary.

Even at my age, 63, I'd go in a NY minute. But I'm sure I'd never get past the health screening. Many years ago I was on a Northwest Airlines 747 coming back from Japan. My ticket,which I paid extra for, was in executive class on the upper deck behind the cockpit. After I boarded and climbed the staircase the gate agent tried to convince me to relocate to the main deck, but not 1st class, to which I responded "The hard part is already done and if this plane ends up on fire I can get down the stairs as fast as anyone else". They relented and let me stay on the upper deck. I can just see me wheeling up to Spaceship II in wheelchair.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.

I'm with Bob. If the chance came, I'd be gone faster than a bullet :) Wanted to go ever since the Mercury missions.

Edit, just so that I could witness scenes like this in person......

I'd love to go after they have a few flights under their belt. Maybe wait a little to see if they kill anyone in the attempt first. :P
