Fly You To The Moon

Not entirely sure this is the right section for this, but I’m filing it under “recent events which affect the community.”

A billionaire is looking for volunteers for a moon mission:

This would be a good opportunity for someone with an empirical bent to put all this round earth nonsense to bed once and for all. Any takers?

I wish these billionaires would make up their mind as to whether they want people to pay to go to outer space or volunteer to go to space.

Either way, nobody has gone yet.

Still a topic better relegated to the pages of whatever sci-fi magazine is still in print.

It's not accessible to "the common man" right now. I'm not sure it ever will be, the business of going into space is complicated and expensive.
But to say that nobody has gone is simply not true.

One small step for Thork.
One giant leap for Thork-kind.

I wonder how they are going to whittle down the (presumably lots of) people who apply to the people who get to go.

(Am pretty sceptical whether this will actually happen too, for the record)

You don't get to land...

The two most likely outcomes IMO are:
1) It won't happen at all
2) They're all going to die.

...And my excitement is crushed. Being stuck in a tin can with potentially a few jerks for 8 days? Dont know if I can justify that anymore...

Billionaire : Hey peasant, want a free ticket to the moon?

Peasant : How come you don't want it? What's wrong with it?

I think you would welcome death if one of the other passengers was Thork. 8 days of listening to him rant about his Jack Russell challenge, you'd be reaching for the hatch lever.

I'm just picturing that Simpsons halloween episode where they're on a ship to the sun with tom Arnold and Rosie o'Donnell...

But if there was an actual spacewalk involved, you could put literally anyone with me and itd be worth it.

There are 12 seats and he's bought all of them.
He's giving 8 away. He's going too and I assume the other 3 are for friends and family?
He's like a modern day Willy Wonka

If you can find me a Jack Russel that will outrun a whippet, we'll let the matter rest.  >:(

Having considered the matter further, I have decided not to go to the moon

It's why they test them ... similar things happened to Falcon test flights, and they're at the stage now where they think nothing of re-using the first stage assemblies for a number of launches.

Not Flat. Happy to prove this, if you ask me.

Nearly all flat earthers agree the earth is not a globe.

Nearly?

Yeah, it is.

The OP is about the moon.

A lot of people have gone very high up above the earth..

But none of them have been taken on these Virgin Galactic or SpaceX billionaire projects.

We do not even have those marvelous flying car fantasy projects.
