    That's a hard one. $200,000 is still steep even for a orbital flight. But once it hits $100,000-ish, yah. I'd take out a loan for that flight even if I'd end up paying it off for the rest of my life I'd bite. Its one of those things I want to do in my lifetime if possible. Actually its #1 on my wishlist.


    Anyone else bite on a $100,000-200,000 trip into orbit?

    I would NOT bite on a $100K space trip. I would CONSIDER a $10K space trip. On the other hand, even that would pay for a month-long vacation for two to just about anywhere in the world; there are still lots of places my wife and I haven't visited.

    i wish i had that kind of money to throw around, ever in my life

    but i know people will bite, once it gets down to the 10k range a lot of poeple will be saving and taking out loans for it, below 10k and it will be massively popular if you ask me

    Keeping in mind the whole possibility of being one of the first to join the 84-mile high club. :D

    This is something I'd love to do also.....but at this price range the lottery will have to get me there. But if I ever do win the lottery I'll take some of you along on this flight too.
