Vote #167

The following question was presented:

Looks like the Virgin spaceship has made its first flight and will be getting ready for those first customers. This is one of those things where it would be really cool to go on a flight into outer space, but you'd be scared to death when the day actually came. That said, it's an opportunity of a lifetime, but how much would you pay for the privilege of flying in outer space?


$0, $1 - $10,000, $10,000 - $50,000, $50,001 - $100,000 and $100,001 - $150,000 tied with 20% of the votes each from the following selection:

  • $0 (20%)
  • $1 - $10,000 (20%)
  • $10,000 - $50,000 (20%)
  • $50,001 - $100,000 (20%)
  • $100,001 - $150,000 (20%)
  • $150,001 - $200,000 (0%)
  • Over $200,000 (0%)

No clear answer then. I'm intrigued as to who voted for $0 - perhaps I should have gone the other way to see how much you would have to pay this person to fly into outer space. That said, it would be brown pants time before you took the trip. Unless you're an astronaut, I'm thinking that this trip would be very dauting, but I suspect adenoline would take over given what you're about to do.

I think the actual price is somewhere around $200,000 and nobody got that high with their money, so I guess there won't be any EBR voters taking a flight into outer space anytime soon.
