Space travel?

If so, why? :confused:

Is science related to space travel?

If the answer is yes, is it necessary to know about science, to be successful during space travel?

If the answer to that is yes, then you will need a science degree. :)

If the answer to that is yes, then you will need a science degree. :)

But if you were going to space just for pleasure purposes, then do you think a degree in science is still vital? :confused:

That's more of a grey area. You'd still need to know what to do in case of an emergency.

In response to the original question, as posed by the OP, let my reply with a similar question.

Do you require a degree for travelling by any other form of transport?

As space travel becomes more possible, and within a more attainable reach to the general public (over the next few decades and couple of centuries) why should space travel require a degree?

Also, to be perhaps a little bit of a pedant here; what are you defining as space? If you mean very long distance (ie extraterrestrial travel from here to the moon, or even mars) than yes for the significantly foreseeable future, the only viable reasons to go into space would be for research and experimentation, or what is considered general help for the human population. But, if you mean space travel in the sense of reaching low altitude orbit, then I think, as advances in the aerospace sector go up, so will the feasibility of 'civilian' space travel.

In an aircraft, you don't need a degree to use its (obvious) advantages, you don't even need a degree to be able to fly one, why shouldn't the same apply for spacecraft?

Yes, I did mean extra terrestrial travel. :ohyes:

I could probably break the world record for the high jump up there....

Or if one of the 'Guinness book of world records' invigilators points out that it would be an 'out-of-world record', as opposed to a world record....

(or I remember my lack of enjoyment in anything requiring much physical effort :) )
