Blow.  There is really no such thing as "sucking", as fluids cannot be pulled.  (Your mom may disagree with this.)

As for "outdoor space chores", there was a job on the Apollo missions where the command module pilot had to do an EVA to retrieve the film cans from outside the service module on the way back to Earth, before the module was discarded.

The task was created in part to make up for the fact that he didn't get to go down to the surface with the others.

NASA was cool back then.

How many times have YOU griped while putting on your shoes to do [x] outside? Now just imagine instead of taking one minute to put on shoes, you have to take half an hour to put on a whole goddamn spacesuit.

You can't even be naked inside the suit.

Just wait until they discover immortal atoms in Io's ion torus. You'd be suited up with cash in hand faster than you can say "fountain of youth".


Lol. It's exactly the same situation as the colonization of America. Sure we could go but why would we spend the money to do so? The minute someone figures out how to make a hefty profit off of colonizing space there will be a mad rush to claim as much as possible.

Quantum Apostrophe: OK, so I might live long enough to see it, but you don't want to?


it was a joke QA...remember i am a bigger life extentioner than you are. I just see the need to go to space (to get away from earth) to achieve it.

And on top of that your fingernails have all fallen off (or you preemptively yanked them) from wearing the damned suit so much.  And so not to seem like a Debbie Downer, I'd gladly pull my fingernails to get to go into space.
