a couple of show stoppers
1. they have no space program and therefore need no 'sir astronauts' jousting about the heavens
2. won't all those swords, maces, axes and pikes cut holes in their space suits from all that jingling around on their utility belts?
3. added expense and weight of pages, horses, armour, pavilions, moat digging tools, drawbridge construction materials, damsels in distress, would
need about 3 of each per astronaut - that's an extra payload of about 3 tonnes per astronaut and would require additional thrust to leave earth's
gravity which means extra fuel, bigger rockets, horse-sized space suits, hay, dung recycling equipment etc etc
