Maybe I am too old to harbor the ambition to become an astronaut, thanks to Sir Richard Branson and all the rocket scientists that are working hard to make space travel safer and cheaper, I can hope to go to space before I die. Right now it is expensive, but already within the reach of civilians. It is expected that it will become cheap enough for any one to blow their retirement savings and go. One of these lucky (and wealthy) individuals is Danish hedge-fund trader Per Wimmer, who is training for his space flight. Here is a video of his interview in which he talks about how he is undergoing a training program to prepare for his 2 1/2 hours space flight. I am jealous.
