I just got back from Space Access 2011. It was interesting. Some of the people there are really into doing things and others are there to ??? One of the comments made echoed what I've thought about the whole getting into space thing. Lots of people talk but only a few act. How long has it been since SpaceShip One? Companies like SpaceX, Armadillo Aerospace, and Garvey Spacecraft are to be commended for doing and I congratulate them. For all the others, excuses are a dime a dozen...period.
Hard work is good for you, try it.
