Would you care to go on a space travel?

I would adore to get on a space shuttle and go up in space, sort of like taking my car out for a Sunday afternoon drive. I wish we could do such a thing! I'd head on over to Kennedy Space Center, that's not too far away from me in Florida, and hop on a shuttle with my family and friends for a couple hours. There could be "space tour" director pointing out the special stars, galaxies, etc. while we cruise around for a couple hours. They could offer some space treats on this flight such as astronaut ice cream or dried jerky...yum! We could all make fun of our hair floating all over the cabin. While on this special trip we could feel what it's like to float and do somersault without gravity. Wouldn't that be grand?

Yes, I would love to travel in space but only for fun and for short periods of time. I would not want to stay up there for days at a time. I would want it more like short two-hour tour and then land back on my two feet.

Well sure, who wouldn't like to see space! But of course only for a short trip, as there are many, many downsides to life on a space station. For example the cramped quarters, the lack of showers (the astronauts clean themselves with moist tissues), the ever present danger of dying in the cold vacuum of space.

The lack of gravity apparently really gets to you, because your bones turn brittle, and weak, so most astronauts end up losing muscle mass and bone mass. The muscle mass can grow back quickly, but bones aren't so quick to heal, and lead to other health problems such as kidney stones (because the bones degrade due to lack of pressure on them, and all that calcium that used to be inside of them has to pass out of your system through your kidney, leading to the formation of painful kidney stones).

So overall I'd think I'd be fine with a week in space, but any longer voyage would probably be too hazardous for me to consider.

Yes,I would like to go on a space travel. But, I don't wanna go there through a space ship. I'd rather explore mind space, or the space of consciousness to be exact. That seems like a much more interesting space.

I think space is not really that interesting. The only cool thing space travel can bring is knowledge of life on other planets. That would be the only reason to go to space. And yes, seeing the earth would be pretty cool as well.

But, the real space travel begins in mind space. That space is more unknown than any other space out there and few are brave enough to travel the depths of the human mind. Thank you for the question.

Yes, I think I would be up for a trip into space. When I was a kid I always wanted to be an astronaut and I have always had a fascination with space and aviation so I think I would jump at the opportunity to go on a space travel. I think the neatest thing about traveling into space would be the chance to see planet earth from a different perspective. I think most people, given a chance to see earth from space, would realize just how fragile and small this planet is in relation to the vastness of space. Perhaps it would be a wake-up call for us to take better care of our home.

Thanks for the interesting question.

I would not care to space travel. Being stuck in a space craft does not appeal to me. Personally I would rather travel to places on our planet. Going on a submarine would probably be a lot more interesting than traveling to the moon. I don't really like long car rides or plane rides. So I am pretty sure I would not like travelling in a space shuttle. I like being outside enjoying nature and exercising too much to be interested in space travel.

Even if I could travel to other planets with life I have not explored our planet enough to want to start exploring another.

I actually would be interested in a space travel if I knew that it was safe. It would be cool to see what the other planets look like up close and all the bright stars. The hardest part would be dealing with no oxygen and temperature changes.

I know that there is a concept for a space elevator, but that most likely won't happen for another 60 years at least. The reason is because the space elevator would cost billions of dollars and could possibly be unsafe.
