US$20M got you a ten day stay, we only need about 10 minutes time from 
somebody who's already up there. And is it "airfare" because if you 
don't pay up they cut off your air? It's certainly not because the 
vehicle is airborne, unless you cound a possible return trip on a 
Shuttle. Last I heard those seats were NFS though...

You know, when I was at down Goddard, I sat in that Gemini capsule in 
the visitor's center wondering if I'd really would have had the guts to 
ride in one. When I was a kid, I would have said *Sure*! But damn, those 
things were small.

I don't even want to *think* about a Mercury.

A Shuttle seems like a cool thing though. Maybe I'm just a little 
claustrophobic. I learned to fly in a C-152 , and that wasn't bad at 
all. Go figure.
