Y would this make you sick? It isn't like they are sending him up because of his accompishments. He is simply a tool for them to earn more money for more research. And why do you use the work faggot? Are you in first grade or born in hick town usa?

it makes me sick because he doesnt deserve to have such an honor placed on his shoulders. the right to go up in space should be earned. it shouldnt be able to be bought by celebrity status. i someday wish to go to space, and if i ever accomplish that goal, it will be because i earned it and actually have something to offer to the program. what does he have to offer????? a pretty face??? shit dude, i dont give a **** how much money he has or how many preteen gurls love him--he has nothing to offer progress in any way. if NASA ever stoops to this level, i will be more than a little disgusted.

and i use the term faggot because i dislike the guy--is that good enough fer u? yes, i used it as an insult. is that alright? should i choose another derogatory term more to yer liking??? by all means, feel free to throw yer own in.

oh, and fer yer info, i was born in california and actually lived in frisco, so i was hardly born in "hick town." ever heard of East LA...?

in a way I agree with alliance.

space is serious. going into space is a serious thing and its not cheap and many have dedicated their lives to get there. Just because some teen idol got a lot of money from his big moment of fame does not mean he should be entitled to go to space if he wishes.


then again, if he's paying 25 million to do it more power to him. he's an ass.

if i had 25 mil, i would gladly pay for that trip. its an opportunity that just cant be passed up. but then again, i have a stable background in science and astronomy and could actually make a contribution someday. a freakin teen-idol, on the other hand, is useless. he in no way can contribute or further our developement as a species. he is what u call a "dead-end" in the potential of mankind.

sry fer the rant. im done fer now. even college students must sleep sometimes...

To go into space for that short amount of time just seems like a waste. Even if it were for a few weeks. There are, in my opinion, much better ways to spend money, (besides Macs lol), like helping others. I see nothing wrong with going into space, but for me personally, I would not do it unless it was pretty inexpensive. Then again, I don't even have 100 dollars to my name, so I should just shut up now.

Space is not a serious thing when anyone can go there for a price.

It's just space, a big space filled with stuff that's too far away to touch or look at properly.

Wow, are you ever missing the point! This is a good thing. If he gets to go, maybe someday I'll get to go too. Obviously, they are taking just about anybody now. The price will have to come down first, though.

I think it would only serve to degrade the public image of how important space (travel, etc.) is... among the greater whole of society...

But if he wants to foot the bill with a minute $25mil which isnt anything compared to the average lift off anyway... let him... "spoiled brat"... It may start some interest in space travel among some young people... but I doubt it...

Either way I find this just as disturbing as the N'ync in Star Wars... I think it was N'sync...

This is a good thing IMO. Mind you, I do not like n'sync music BUT many young girls and maybe boys do. This may instill an interest in space exploration and research. NASA is being neglected with funds and cutbacks, and I always felt that the next huge step in space exploration/tourism will be brought to us by corporate entities. Remember that story a while back about a hotel company wanting to make a space resort using used up shuttle fuel tanks?
post #13 of 36
good thing? this is a GREAT thing! and forget just sending one up there, send them all! we could all chip in a nickle and sent n' sync in space, where last i checked sound doesn't carry........

i think the ruskies are hookin' us up big time here.

Could we put them 'N Geosynchronous orbit

Maybe we can bribe the Ruskies to leave them there? How about if we pool together 60 Mill?

thats exactly my point.

most people dont know just how difficult it is to get out there. they take it for granted now, and most dont see the significance of it all.

oh well...societys made up primarily of idiots anyway...

You people are totally wrong. This is the next step for space travel. Wouldn't it be great if we all could go? Well? We'll never get there as long as we treat it as rocket science off limits to everyone but the chosen few.

then let someone at least a slightly bit more deserving go. at least let someone who has a respected career go up there. yes, i wouldnt mind it so much if the person going was a decent figure of society. but n'sync doesnt bring that. its simply a publicity stunt and improper use to fame. as far as im concerned, until they get a respected person to represent us in this next stage of space exploration, then its just a joke...

I agree, apart from one bit, many have LOST their lives in the space race. I think that it is way to early in space flight to put a dumb boyband member out there. He'll probably press the wrong button and undo the airlock.

Let's take space travel off the pedestal. It's not the saccade cow you all make it out to be. Or it shouldn't be. If we want it to become common then we have to treat it that way.

Let's put it this way : Most of us will be using Segways before we get into space

no, its just the opposite. most people dont think its a big deal, or thats even that difficult. but it is. do u know how dangerous space travel is? do u know what kind of risks are involved?? do u know how difficult it is to make an efficient mode of space transportation??? it costs billions every flight. and we're really nowhere near an efficient means necissary to make space travel accessable to normal citizens. do not make it seem like its a normal flight accross the country or whatever. cause thats not how it is. we are very far away from making it accessable to the rest of us--mainly because we just dont have that technology yet.

when we have the technology to efficiently send multiple people to space, then sure, make a big deal out of it. but fer now, each person sent in space has a critical role to play in progress. and n'sync cannot offer any contribution that could aid progress in any way.

why do you think an nSync member spending 25 million dollars is going to help bring space travel to the masses? another guy has already done this and what was the result? just another millionaire wanting to do the same thing.

space travel is not refined, safe, and cheap enough for mass market travel. nor will it be for several maybe many years.

again, this will do nothing but get a millionaire pop singer into space

I agree with you Scott, in the next decade the travel in space will become more common. For the moment you have to pay 25 millions dollars, in 50 years , prize will be drop down in a incredible manner : it should cost you the prize of a good car.

Space will become common in the future, it's just a matter of time and one more step in human destiny.
post #28 of 36
for once, i agree with scott h. opening space travel to the public has to start somewhere.

and really, "faggot?" could we be a little more imaginative with our insults?
post #29 of 36
Space travel for us common folks won't be a reality for 50 years or more and then it'll be just us getting shuttled around. It's not like we'll all be having little space ships jetting around to the moon or mars on a whim. It'll be more like modern air travell in jumbo jets. If we do get colonies on Mars in the far future (talking year 2100+) then they would probably have huge cargo/passenger ships making maybe only 4 trips a year back and forth.

as much as i hope this is true, im too much of a realist to let it influence my opinions. i think its possible, but not probable. there are just too many obstacles in the way. ill be first to sign up if and when the opportunity arises. hell, im very tempted to quit my major and make a run at NASA. i would love to be on the first colony on mars, but on the timeline NASAs set, id be too old by then and have nothing to offer. but yes, maybe our children will see the fruits of all our labor.
