27 September 2004: Virgin Airways announces plans to license the SpaceShipOne technology from Scaled Composites in order to offer rides into space by Virgin Galactic.  It is estimated that each ticket will sell for $190,000 and the first flights will be within five years.
4 October 2004: Space Ship One blasted into space, fulfilling the requirements to win the $10,000,000 Ansari X-Prize.  The ship was designed and built by Scaled Composites.

Okay...so here's your chance to send me into space.

Granted, it is (I hope) a round-trip ticket; they're not gonna leave me up there.  That may diminish the appeal that some have to donate.  Then again, the one donation I've already received has declared that they'd double the donation for a one-way ticket.

Contribute a little or contribute a lot.  But I'll use this money for signing up for one of the first Virgin Galactic flights into space.  I don't know that I want to be the first, but I'd like to do it sooner rather than later.  I'm not getting any younger.

Clicking the button below will allow you to make a donation to this effort via PayPal.  If you pay straight from your checking account, I get more of the money as there's a fee to accept credit cards.

I really don't think I'm asking a lot.  When you consider that over 600,000 people paid $8 to see From Justin To Kelly, I think those same people, as punishment, should be required to each send me $1.  I'm sure that they'd get more enjoyment out of sending me to space than they did from seeing that awful movie.

As for the filmmakers, they should be ashamed and finance me entirely.  Surely they'd get more enjoyment out of it. 

Current Donations: $5.00
Pledges: $2.53
To Go: $189,992.92
