I was up early this morning. I couldn't sleep so I decided to read about Space Travel.
It seems there have been quite a few stories in the news lately about "the final frontier." Most notably, good ol' Richard Branson and his public space ship, cleverly christened . . . um, SpaceShip . . . number 2. Seriously, "Spaceship?" That's the name they came up with?
You can take a virtual ride by watching this video (scroll to about 4 minutes in to see the good parts):
That being said, plenty of people are willing to take the risk. What about you? Is the novelty of "space" worth the potential hazard of dying in a fiery crash? Do you think this will really spark a boom of "space tourism" like Branson hopes?
