    Default A Shot In The Dark - Need To Find A Space Shuttle Ticket

    Everyone,

    I'm heartsick. I had a VIP causeway ticket to view the upcoming Space Shuttle launch (STS-134) on April 29th. It was inadvertently thrown away during a bout of housecleaning. I'm leaving tomorrow on a road trip from Los Angeles to Florida to see the launch.

    I know this is a complete crapshoot, but if anyone has or knows anyone else who has an extra VIP causeway ticket to this launch, I would love to buy it from them. It's possible that because the launch was recently pushed from 4/19 to 4/29, that some people will not be able to use their tickets.

    Thank you
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    I am searching on ebay, and see some up for bid. Have you checked there? You may get lucky, sorry to hear about the loss of your ticket EffEmDoubleYou. Good luck!

    For example: One current auction

    P.S. I read the title of this post, and it made me imagine you were sick and tired of this world, so looking for a ticket outta here!

    Thanks, PeaceBaby!

    I've made inquiries on Facebook and on the tour company message board. Hopefully something will pan out. I'm hesitant to go to eBay until I've exhausted other avenues, but it's a pretty good last resort. I don't know how logical it is, but I feel like if someone here has one, it's more trustworthy.

    Oh, man! That sucks that you threw yours away!!!

    I think ebay's pretty safe if the seller has good feedback, as far as buying tickets goes. I think that's where I ended up getting my Fleetwood Mac tickets last year.

    I was sort of hoping NASA finally launched a shuttle program where common citizens could ride into space. but no no that's too presumptious of me.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    Ouch, my heart aches for you, too.

    I wouldn't strike out eBay...it's actually not as sketchy as it might sound. And it might be your ticket (ha ha) to...uh...your ticket. Try it!
