Space Oddity

The idea of being an astronaut fascinates me:   no gravity, a sense of being disconnected, the fear of not being able to return to your known world, walking outside the space craft in bulky suits with your partner, going on a journey.

Even though the idea intrigues me, I don't really care to be in a space shuttle going to another planet or into space.  My husband would travel into space if he had the chance, and I would go with him.  How about you?  Would you want to travel into space?

I love David Bowie's "Space Oddity."

Absolutely not! I am afraid to get on an airplane.

ya know...probably not. like you, i am fascinated by the idea of it and can certainly appreciate the awesomeness that is outer space, but i really don't know that i trust modern technology enough to get me there and back safely.

now. if i had the power to just zap myself there, then maybe so.

i feel the same way about giving birth to a baby. absolutely fascinated by it all but don't think wanna do it!

Marlene, space travel is definitely out for you if flying in an airplane isn't your thing:)

Flytie, childbirth is another thing that fascinates me, but like you said, I haven't wanted to experience it.

So far everyone seems to agree.
Reading, nothing cowardly about that.
Rosebud, you cracked me up with your word play.
