How much to just keep DiCaprio in space for a longer period of time?

Pass, rather go on the Souyz. True, would need 50 to 60 million then. Alas.

Virgin Galactic is hardly space travel and DEFINITELY not galactic. I'm thinking a trip should at least be orbital to be space travel. If you never even reach orbit, you really didn't do more than a kid does jumping in a game of hopscotch. They're both suborbital ballistic trajectories.

What about a MiG-29? It's only about 50000$.

Now, now. Baby steps. Virgin Universal will be the company to look out for. They might get you to the ISS.

I read that as Leonardo Da Vinci, which, at $1.5 million,is a bargain... Traveling back to the 1400s and taking a spaceship with you costs WAY more than that these days. Perhaps taking a short jaunt to the future when the prices finally drop to more reasonable levels, but the moratorium on anti-matter means you'd have to haul an old-fashioned rocket for space travel, which requires a whole other level of infrastructure and investment.

Dunno... maybe jump forward, jump back, get Leonardo, then jump forward? That's a lot of jumps, and dooms an entire thread of timelines to 300 years, at least, of retarded technological development. Al those jumps would require at least a year's worth of recovery, too.

Misread the headline and thought of this:
