Space Tourists Could Be Struck Down By Astro-Sickness, Warns Astronaut...


The one thing I am concerned about with tourists in space is people thinking you can just get on a rocket and just go into space.

“It’s not like riding a commercial aircraft, not at all, and I can see all these problems with people up there and throwing up and messing up somebody’s flight that they paid $250,000 for.

“I was lucky I never threw up, because if you think throwing up is bad here on the ground it’s really bad in space.” Source
