Would you have a go, if it was paid for?

I would love to try it but age and health prevent.(never mind the cost). I have read many testiments from astronauts proclaming great feeling af awe and amazement at viewing the Earth from space.

The closest I have come was in my days of skydiving some 25 years ago.

So, given the chance would you venture into space?

Yes I would love to, not that I will ever have the opportunity.

Beam me up Scotty.

Absolutely, I would also be in the queue, with my wallet on standby, I wish!

I still believe this is all done in a Movie Studio on Earth.

I'd rather go down, there's more to see in the sea.....isn't there?

  Blackhat 22:57 06 Apr 2007

The Vomit Comet, possibly an affordable alternative but as the name suggests you may well loose your last meal, having seen an in cockpit video of a space shuttle launch I would think that a bung at the other end would be well recomended.

White truck man,

Where did you do your freefalls?

Include me out! Did you see the prog last week about the Challenger Shuttle disaster?

Too many failures during take off - landing for me.
