well Its a bit beyond our reach.
In the news it costs about 30 million to actually physically fly for a tourist.
For an astro you need to have 4 degrees in maths and other subjects and a load of other crap that none of us let alone any normal person not dedicated enough would be able to pass.


Even if we did, I am not sure in real life what blind astros could do.
Maybe opperate some of the less graphical systems, write things, etc but vary little.

I think right now any real chance of any of us going up in space is vertually nonexistant for now anyway.
In fact this applies for any disabled person.
Wheelchair people for instance wouldn't even fit inside things.
Not to mention going to the loo I here this is quite complex to.
And ofcause coming back to earth after your stay in space well getting used to gravity is a bit of a challenge.

thus my love for space games. Right from elite onwards really. I think
that's 1 area where the accessible games market is seriously lacking. We
have an excellent game like loan wolf, so why not take that further and
develop a fully fledged sim.

Hi Ron,

Why couldn't we do a Shuttle launch? I have a friend who went to Space
Camp one year and she ended up being Shuttle Commander. They even let
her try as Shuttle pilot in the simulator which was cool. I think with
the right accessibility aids flying a space shuttle is no different
than any other aircraft. You just have to make sure to get the angles
right when taking off and landing or you will turn into a fireball.

Anyway, I would love a space shuttle simulator. I've always wanted to
fly one of the shuttles and it shouldn't be that hard to create. Just
need to get the right kind of actors to do for the communications
between the flight crew and NASA. As well as the flight crew and the
International Space Station etc.

Cheers!
