Okay, how about just to Cocoa Beach for the World Space Expo in November? Nope, don't think I'll be able to make the Nov. 1 - 4, 2007 event (although my friends down there said they may have comp tickets). I want to go meet former astronauts and learn about the next step in space exploration. The Blue Angels will be there, too. But, I think I need to be good and save my money for Italy. *sigh*
All this talk of space reminds me to post this link to the Barefoot's article called "NASA Announces New Astronaut Hiring for Those with the Right Stuff." I don't have the right stuff but maybe you do?
