Add your comments to the Space Projects Yahoo Club.

If you wish to debate a subject, you can also use the Space Projects Yahoo Club. It is a forum where you can leave your opinion, thoughts, feelings and ideas. Here are some ideas.

  1. Should the next space first be an ALL CREWED FEMALE on the Space Shuttle or Russian Soyuz?
  2. What do you think is the future of Space Tourism? Do you have a dream?
  3. Would you spend 1 week holiday in space in first class, sipping champagne and looking at our lovely Earth? Sounds nice?

See you in the next newsletter.
