    Question Question

    I was thinking about this not too long ago:

    Imagine yourself as a student, probably in high school, or middle school, and your Astronomy teacher said "We have a field trip coming up." and you, expecting a predictable conference or planetarium, what would you do if he said "We're going to space; Low Earth Orbit to be exact. There's more to it then just our books. We need to experience it. It's all funded."

    Would you go?

    Edit:

    Low Earth Orbit visually is like this:

    Unnecessary to even think of asking me

    sure, if I didn't have anything else better to do, like fly to the Mustafar system and kill the remaining Seperatist leaders.

    No. It would contribute to a colossally irresponsible waste of resources I wouldn't want on my conscience. Also, as has been demonstrated several times already, we are not capable of sending people into space safely. Statistically you'd have a 1/50 chance of death.

    Only if I can pump as much anti-motion sickness medicine as my body could handle. I get motion sickness easily
