Why I wrote this:

  • It's a tourist destinaion and will definitely remain so for the future (unless something really bad happens)
  • It's a tiny article and doesn't take much effort to write or maintain
  • We want to be complete
  • Sometimes, you have to encourage dreams :)

Actually, it's explicitly out of scope (geographical hierarchy). --Evan 10:50, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

Alright, though I'd argue that Earth orbit should definitely be included. Sort of like how you include territorial waters with a nation. If we ever get tourism to the Moon and Mars, we'll have to redefine anyway. And Space is a tourist destination. Until then, I'll be careful not to mention satellite phones. ;) -- Nils 11:04, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

OK, let's see what happens with it. Let's not have it on the Main Page for a while until it's a little more mature, though. --Evan 11:08, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

Fair enough, although we do link some factbook imports on the mainpage as well outer space is a bit out of place there. I was quite aware of this... "Other Destinations" didn't have a subpage, however, tho and I didn't want to create one. Might make sense to do that. Among other things, we could list oceans on there too. (You have to link it somewhere). -- Nils 11:14, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

So, how about in Travel topics? It's more of a travel topic than a destination guide, as far as I can tell. --Evan 11:23, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)
Actually, space is obviously a region, whose destinations would include the Moon, Mars, etc. Space tourism is for real and the Russkies are now offering flights around the moon for a mere US$100 million, so I think this is worth expanding. Jpatokal 23:19, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)
