    Anyone want to join me on a 100,000 flight?
    The Virgin Galactic spacecraft, which was being unveiled in New York today, is already under construction. Test flights are expected to begin in June, with commercial flights starting 12 months later.

    Beam me up, Scotty! ah...er...Adam. I'm ready.

    Affiliate program? That would be cool; then maybe I could even afford a flight - IF they will let me pay from my spaceflight blog and/or eBook earnings after the event.

    Seriously, if I had that kind of disposable cash lying around, I would definitely sign up. For a Christmas present this year, Mrs. Beachy gave me a gift certificate for a Warbird Flight. The AT-6 Texan (WW II fighter pilot trainer) will be flying out of an airport near Baltimore in early May. I'll be on a flight WITH the aerobatic option. WooHoo!

    Jenn, my wife, is all extremely excited about commercial orbital/space travel. Nothing like rides on the "vomit comet". She has a great picture on her desktop of Stephen Hawking riding one.

    Oh, yeah, we know!!! This from the women who jumps out planes for a break at Affiliate Summit. I thought the driving in LA would be scary enough for you. Now you want outer space as well?

    Soon as I remember which pocket I left my wallet in, I am so there.

    I'm the kid who dreamed of going to space who turned into the student who dreamed about writing about space who turned into the guy who just wants to find a decent space based show or movie who turned into the man who looks up and wonders what could have been if ....


    hmmm when I put it like that, I sound pretty pathetic.

    Should have stuck with I'm in.
    ================================================================
    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Sure - any life insurance company would jump all over that offer.

    dang, I remember reading in the 6th grade that these flights would be available in the 90s. We're behind!

    I would love to go on a space flight, but I'll wait until 1. they become more affordable (you know they will) and 2. they have a few thousand flights under their belts to prove the safety.

    I was fearless as a teenager. Now... I don't even ride roller coasters anymore!
    There is NO WAY I am getting on that!

    OK... Maybe if it guaranteed me a million bucks and 25 pounds lighter when I got back! HA HA

    A great milestone. This will make 36 hour international travels to 2 hours. Can't wait until the technology is fully commercialized and starts competing with regular flights
