I think Im way too old for this, but its a neat dream for those who might be interested in such a thing for the future

Exactly what GeneralMishka said.
I'm in my forties now and too old for such an exciting adventure, how I envy the young for all the opportunities that are opening up for them
regarding space travel.
On a related note, a deodorant company are currently running a competition and the prize(s) is a trip into space.
If I was in my teens/twenties I would be all over that!
When I was a child in the 70's reading 200AD and digesting greedily anything NASA put out I dreamed of visiting the stars but it was always a remote
and unattainable dream, now its a possibility and more attainable than ever.
I won't name the company running the comp as it may violate T&C's but a google search with 'Apollo' and the name of a large wild cat will get you
The stuff of dreams. I would give ten years of my life to go up to the edge of space in a U2 plane, let alone into orbit. I know 40's isn't really
that old but for space travel its positively ancient.
Now where did I put my ear trumpet?
