World’s first space tourist 10 years on: Dennis Tito

Quite apart from the fact that he could afford to do this, this man seems almost spiritual about his experience, recalling many of the interviews with astronauts who have walked on the moon. Such simple but moving descriptions. And I think he’s entirely correct when he says that there are many, many people alive today who would pay every penny they have to have this experience.

Also it’s hilarious that NASA turned him down, but when he approached the Russian Federal Space Agency, they pretty much said: “???? ????????????, ?????????? ?????????????? ??????? ????????????????????, ???????????????????? ?????????????????? ???????????????????????? ???????????????????????? ?????????????????? ?? ?????????????? ???????????????????? ??????????????!”

I play bass, I cook, I look out the window. Sometimes I prefer wondering what's out there to going out and looking. But not all the time. I only recently learned that leaving two spaces after a full stop is obsolete.
