DailyDirt: I'm Leavin' On A Space Plane, Don't Know When I'll Be Back Again....

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

NASA's space shuttle program is winding down, but it seems like there's some growing interest in going to space. SpaceShipOne won the $10 million Ansari X Prize in 2004, and even though it only touches the edge of space, it's still a pretty remarkable achievement. But it's about 6 years later, and trips to space aren't exactly tickets you can buy on Orbitz (or Priceline or Expedia, etc). Here are a few interesting links on space travel and traveling in the future (not *to* the future).

    Muslims in space

    Turkish astronauts on a space shuttle? Turkey would use them to spread Islam, tell all of the aliens to convert or die. Brilliant.
