    Default Space. Who's going?



    Richard Branson, left, and Burt Rutan unveil a plane that they say will serve as the mothership for the world's first commercial spaceflight.



    Richard Branson's space plane will carry a rocket ship up to 48,000 feet in the atmosphere, where it will detach and launch into space.



    Artwork on the fuselage of Richard Branson's space plane shows various aspects of humankind's designs on flying.




    More than 250 wanna-be astronauts have paid Richard Branson $200,000 for a chance to float weightless in space. The first leg of their journey would be aboard the pace plane unveiled in Mojave.

    What's wrong, Amy? You don't have $200,000 laying around?

    I'm working on giving my little brother non-hodgkins lymphoma so he can use his make-a-wish to take me and him on one of these flights.


    I'm kidding, obviously.


    I'd love to do this
    I've always dreamed of going to space
    unfortunately, I'm not nearly mathematically oriented enough to be a useful astronaut, so this private isht is certainly my only chance

    the first thing I thought of was that guy from the gardening on salvia thread. "excuse me... I have to go into space now."

    I worked for JPL right after I finished my undergrad. No jokes. Your mass remains the same, acceleration is punched because of your relative surroundings(in a free fall state) so if you land wrong, the force can be concentrated. You feel like since you are not going that fast, it wont hurt to land, on say your big toe(assuming you are barefoot, this is the proof that came around in the late 90's about why Jack Johnson hates space, he cannot be barefoot.) But if you do this, concentrating a large amount of force on such a small area, you can easily break a bone, its intimidating.
    But before you go up, they tell you all about what you should and shouldn't do, its easily avoid, the palm of one of your hands is safe to land on plain, but it feels really strange. A quick burst of pain that makes you just laugh. When I first just started cracking up when this happened, I asked the guy in charge if he had any Nitrous, he laughed and told me that it would consider it for the next trip up. Crazy fucking People at JPL, oh god, even the army brats are okay.
    I've always been curious about this--how the fuck is no gravity emulation executed?

    remember when they did this in Superman and it failed? Same thing is going to happen and people are going to fucking die.
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    It's never going to work, and it's never going to catch on. People who think in 20 years we'll be vacationing on the moon are morons.

    Why did we settle on the name "Space"? That's like checking "Other" but not filling in the "Please Explain".

    Virgin Galactic website says the price is 20,000$ for "Voyagers", or the people who go after the first ~1100.

    you are in a plane that goes up and down at a steep angle...

    the vomit comet:


    "After accelerating upward at 2 G's, the plane goes weightless near the pinnacle of its parabolic arc for about 30 seconds, when experiments must take place, and then accelerates downward at 2 G's before rising again."

    it's like when riding a roller coaster and you hit the top and feel like you are going to fly out of the seat, just lasts a lot longer.

    Better hope Branson and his little ship can avoid the Kessler Syndrome.
