Excited(?) Over Space Travel in My Lifetime

Virgin Galactic is building their next generation spacecraft. News articles here and here.

Makes me start to think we will have private space flight available to the general public in my lifetime. Hmm… suborbital flight between continents in a few hours… beats the grueling 18+ hours to hit the next hemisphere.

The only thing I really fear is the kid four seats behind me getting space sick and throwing up in zero gravity. With no gravity, it’d float straight until it encountered something, and largely continue to float around until re-entry where it’d splatter all over the place. 😦

Am I the only one that thinks about these things? *grin*
