I don't think I would be happy constantly bundled up and stuck in a tube, floating around looking at darkness and having to put up with fellow crewmen and crew-women who are neurotypical and annoying and THERE all the time.

Absolutely yes. I'm hopelessly a space case. The thing I would most look forward to is the experience of seeing the earth from orbit, all 6-7 billion people down there, countless other species, everything we've ever known right before your eyes. Almost everyone who has had that experience says it's life changing. I'd want to use some future space elevator, of course. None of that silly mucking about with controlled explosions. Who'm I kidding, I'd even do it without the space elevator.

(Yes and No)

In the sense of the real world from perhaps NASA space center---No. I would find it too scary for me---the risk factor concerns me.

But to be able to go to a real life Lost in Space (the 60s version of the show) would sound fun. Or to go on board a real life version of the Enterprise (Star Trek) would sound fun. But gee---wouldn't that be risky in real life?

Well, I for one would kinda be a bit bored. I mean, the view's great, but even an Aspie gets bored if he stares out the window long enough. :hmph: I would rather actually GO somewhere in space, like Mars. It would be a bit more interesting if you weren't confined to a tin can falling at 17,000 miles an hour around a planet you've been on your entire life. (I love Kerbal Space Program though.)

Floating around in zero gravity, eating food from tubes, going to the bathroom in your space suit...it's everything I've ever dreamed of and more! :mrgreen:
