Prepare for your flight!

I usually don't write a post just to talk about someone else's article, but Universe Today has a great article today on how to prepare for spaceflight. Universe Today is a great source for space and science news, and though they don't usually post about space tourism in specific, they tend to have an article or two on it per month.

Anywho, the particular article I'm talking about describes an event at the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS) in which Former astronaut Dan Barry and Zero Gravity Corporation CEO and co-founder of Space Adventures Peter Diamandis gave several interesting and important pieces of advice to future space travelers. The most important to me is number four. Afterall, that's why you're there, right? Look up the word "Numinous" in the dictionary. And read the book Contact. That's right, not the movie, the book. Though the movie is great too. Do it! And vote! But not on a voting machine unless you're recording it!

That and other random commands brought to you today by Joe Space Tourist.
