Would you ever wanna go to space?

Assuming that it doesn't have any health, financial or familial complications, has space travel ever been your fancy?

I've always been super curious about the great vastness of space. There just seems to be something very beautiful about staring into the stars with nothing but your thoughts to reflect upon.

With my current circumstances involving family, finances and time, I'd obviously never go but if someday, we have the technology to safely come and go in a day, sign me up.

Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building. I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.

Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

No way. I'm freaking out and sweating, making deals with God (who I don't even believe in) anytime I take a regular flight. I can't even imagine what a space flight would be like.

You're assuming space flight is actually possible...

Yes, absolutely.

The question doesn't assume that. It'd be like me asking "Would you like to fly like Superman?" We all know it isn't possible, but it's still a question. Except in this case, space flight is, of course possible.

And go where really, a human can't reach anything farther then the Moon and the barren land of Mars that doesn't offer much to look at beyond photos we've seen is still out of reach.

As cool as it would be to look back and see the Earth from out there, I really don't have any desire to leave it myself.

I liked the idea as a kid but I lack a lot of science knowledge required for it and I'm not sure what it would be like as a sensory experience

it would be cool if we could explore more of space though, to see what else lurks in the galaxy

Depends on only one thing: does it make your ears pop/hurt? 'Cause if so, I'm out. Planes are bad enough as it is.

Good question.

Only been on two airliners in my life and the first one made me experience what it felt like to be deaf on the left side for several days. I don't want to be deaf... Guess I'm definitely staying on Earth.

Assuming:

1. It was free (nobody who isn't a millionaire would get to go there if real life space travel was a thing)

2. It was safe

Why not? It would be the experience of a lifetime.

Despite the risks, yeah I would go if there was no responsibilities tying me down to Planet Earth.
It would be quite the experience.

As exciting as it would be to go to space, I would have to decline the offer.

Anything can go wrong, no matter how “safe” it may be. Do you know what it’s like to die in space? It’s freaking brutal and horrifying.

But is it really? We haven't been "back" to the moon since the 60s because we suddenly don't have the technology.... yet, our tech today is better and most of it smaller than ever, yet we can't land on the moon....

NASA plans to return to the Moon by 2025.

Much of that current status is from earlier political decisions to outsource space flight in the name of "globalization".

So if there is a conspiracy there for you to latch onto, it shouldn't be that "the moon landing was a lie!" but maybe you can sink your teeth into "the global elite ruined U.S. Spaceflight for a one-world government" or something to your liking such as that.

So do you believe that humanity has never achieved space flight before? No ill will from my side, I'm just curious.

The Government lies. Its what they do. I question EVERYTHING. A half truth is a whole lie. It does not make sense that tech of the 60s allowed us to get to the moon but then suddenly, newer and better tech can't get us to the same place. But those same clowns want us all driving EVs that are blowing up & killing people... Lol. Yeah, okay. Sure....

Oh, yeah. You don’t have to be a conspiracist to know that.

I mean, I don’t believe in reptilian men or literal blood-sucking politicians or fake moon landings, but I don’t believe everything I see on the mainstream media either. It’s not just me; the overall trust in the media is at an all-time low right now because there has been so much deception and gaslighting. The Biden laptop story is a perfect example.
