Space Tourism Training
My question now is are you cut out for it? You couldn't have thought they were just going to seat you in a shuttle and fling you out into the cosmos? Did you? I'm sure we mentioned this CNET news piece somewhere in the past, but as a refresher I thought to mention again, just in case. For those seriously considering travel to space now is the to start training and for that you may wish to travel to Singapore first.
A while back Space Adventures announced its plans to build a space station on the small island nation with a Singapore-based consortium. The space port will offer suborbital flights, operate astronaut training facilities and will also be an educational visiting center for the public. Prospective space tourists can get a glimpse and understanding of the forces experienced during the rocket launch. Medical and physical ability will be tested and includes a simulated water landing. This is just the tip of the comet people, to see more of what's require check out this great photo gallery found on CNET.
