QuoteMore than 500 people, including celebrities such as physicist Stephen Hawking and former Dallas actress Victoria Principal, have put down a deposit for a ticket that will cost them about $200,000.

Really! Stephen Hawking. Not sure he'd be allowed to fly by flight crew or his doctor. Good on him if he can.

I'm vying for the coveted position of "understudy" for Dr. Hawking. If he can't go, then I'd use his ticket. :P

Looks like the hurdles just keep getting bigger and bigger. But adversity only serves to make us stronger. I'm saddened by both the loss of life and the setback, but I'm also confident that we'll learn from this "serious anomaly", and push on to new heights.

Not a good week for space flight in the USA.

This must be happening now. Will post more details as I find them.
