Kirk Says No To Space Travel

Captain Kirk

It looks as though even the legendary captain Kirk has his doubts about space travel. Willian Shatner has kindly turned down the offer presented to him by Richard Branson to be a passenger on Branson’s first voyage into space. Shatner claims he’s terrified at the idea of space travel, saying:

I’m interested in man’s march into the unknown but to vomit in space is not my idea of a good time. Neither is a fiery crash with the vomit hovering over me.

Richard Branson has been talking about public space travel for a years now, and it finally seems to be in a fit state. The project, titled Virgin Galactic’s Flights, will begin sometime in 2008. Anyone got their seat booked?
