Spacewoman: Bitter yet Happy in Orbit
Peggy Whitson, the American astronaut spending her 130th day in space, said on Sunday that she was happy in orbit, but maybe she brought along too much shrimp. “Sometimes, when you come to space, your tastes change. One of my favorite foods on the ground is shrimp, and up here I can’t stand it,” said Whitson, the science officer on the International Space Station. A list of the station’s belongings showed that Whitson had planned more than 40 shrimp meals for her stay. “The guys like it because they get all my shrimp,” she said, referring to her two Russian crewmates, Valery Korzun and Sergei Treschev. The three members of the space station’s Expedition Five team held a joint news conference with the six astronauts from the space shuttle Atlantis on Sunday.

“I’m having a great time up here. It’s fun to live here and do the science ,” said Whitson, a biochemist doing and examining dozens of studies on the station. When someone asked about her plans for Christmas, Whitson said “It’s hard to imagine being back home because I guess I feel like this is my home right now. I don’t have my husband, but other than that, this is my home.” Whitson, due to return to Earth with Korzun and Treschev aboard a U.S. shuttle in November, said some changes in space take more getting used to than others.

Salsa, or spicy tomato sauce, can usually overcome the blandness of space food. “We could probably eat paper if we had it with salsa,” she said. But calluses are another matter. In weightlessness, she never actually stands, but does sway about with her feet in foot restraints. “It was really interesting to me to lose the calluses from the bottom of my feet and to get calluses on the top of my feet after being up here for a few months,” she said.

Unit 11 Space Travel Poll: US Rich Eyeing Space Tourism
Rich Americans are willing to spend big sums of money on attempts to fly into space, including paying $100,000 for a 15minute trip into the heavens, according to poll given on Monday. Possibly bored by the common things on earth or inspired by such brave pioneers as the first American in apace Alan Shepard and the first billionaire in space Dennis Tito, the poll says 7 percent of rich Americans would pay $20 million for a two-week orbital flight and 19 percent would pay $1000,000 for a 15-minute sub-orbital flight. The poll by Zogby International was commissioned by Futron Corp., a Maryland aerospace consulting group which has a $1.8 million contract with NASA to explore the commercial uses of space travel, including what space tourism could look like in the next 20 years. Zogby International conducted telephone interviews with 450 Americans whose yearly income top $250,000 or whose net worth.

tops $1 million. The poll, conducted in January but only released on Monday, has an error rate of plus or minus 4.7 percent. Futron’s NASA project program manager Derek Webber said, “We commissioned this survey in order to get an idea of what rich people think and not the man in the street who loves the idea of going into space but can’t afford it.” He added, “We are saying these trips will cost a minimum of $100,000 for a 15-minute trip, which was the amount of time the first American in space, Alan Shepard, had and for that you get to feel space weightlessness and see the world from up there.” that trip would take a tourist 50 miles (80km) into space. Webber said a surprising 7 percent of the wealthy polled said they would be willing to take a two-week flight to an orbiting space station, paying the $20 million that the Russians charged the two pioneering space tourists who have already made the trip, South African Mark Shuttleworth and American Denis Tito.
