RocketPlane talks on Space Travel in the 21st Century

A number of businesses have been developing programmes for making space travel available to the masses: RocketPlane Limited, who have been involved in the recent Vanishing Point Game from Microsoft, have set up a SkypeCast to discuss their goal of taking their first commercial flight in 2008.

In the chat with employees of RocketPlane will be the grand prize winner of the Vanishing Point Game, as well as former NASA astronaut John B. Herrington. The SkypeCast is scheduled for Monday, 12 February 2007: check the URL for timings.

Please note this is not the SkypeCast with 42 Entertainment as publicised earlier which had to be pulled for contractual reasons. This will be scheduled in due course: watch this space for details.

Hasn't anyone considered the CO2 impact this will have for those few minutes of weightlessness? :confused:

Probably not. I wouldn't if I had won the prize. If I refused the prize, someone else would take it so why refuse? The flight would go ahead anyway.
