If Jeff Bezos invited you to ride on his next trip into space, would you accept?

Jeff Bezos of Amazon fame is trying to make his next mark as a spaceman. He’s shooting people into space already. Just this past week he launched 90-year old William Shatner, Captain Kirk of Star Trek fame, toward the heavens, his first trip there despite a lot of adventures on film with Klingons, Romulans and cute but deadly Tribbles.

The latest astronauts including William Shatner.

So, what if Bezos invited you on a future trip, all expenses paid? Would you say yes or no?

Let’s see how adventurous the RVtravel.com crowd is when it comes to taking a journey up, and not just forward or backward.

It may take a moment for the poll to load, so stand by.

I’d rather go with Musk and actually spend some time up there, but I wouldn’t turn even 10 minutes down.

How does riding in Bezos’ cannonball shot make you a professional astronaut?

What is it about going to space that intrigues so many? You can’t do anything but look out a window and see a big blue ball floating in a vacuum.

Going to space? Yes. With Blue Origin? No. I would go with SpaceX because they actually go to space.

How many schools or hospitals could be built with the money spent on one “space” flight?

Jim Prideaux

You would have to crunch the numbers which are not readily available. But I can tell you how many schools are not being built because Jeff is shooting rockets into space: Zero

Probably quite a few. But it isn’t money that is being sent into space, the money is being spent on his employees salaries, his suppliers products, and his contractors, and whatever sales taxes apply, and all of them are paying taxes and making charitable contributions with that money, and that is building schools and hospitals.

Absolutely!!!! I remember as a kid sitting in the living room watching the Moon landings. If the chance became available I would go without hesitation.

I was fortunate to be one of the tens of thousands who worked on PROJECT APOLLO from 1966 to 1970. A chance to go into space, ABSOLUTELY.

Not the slightest interest in space travel. Already travel enough in RV to spend much of our time at home mowing grass.

Of course I would. Then I’d thank Mr. Bezos for supporting charities in his Smile.Amazon.Com program and ask him to do the same with Unions in his warehouses.

Not just yes, H&LL YES!

I see a lot comments qualifying who what when why they would fly with.

I don’t care! Don’t look a gift space ride in the mouth!

I’m always up for an adventure so if it’s free I would go. Wouldn’t pay for it though.

I would love to go, but I would get claustrophobic in the small capsule!
