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)

Japanese Sidebar

Um... somebody came along and added the cross link to the Japanese language page today. Suddenly, though, the left sidebar is now completely in Japanese. Any ideas? -- Ilkirk 14:29, 24 Oct 2005 (EDT)

On the Earth -- in or out?

Hmm -- should the "On the Earth" section stay in "Get in", or move to "Get out"? Jpatokal 00:09, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

I like it in Get in... it's the first stage of actually "getting in" to Space, and it fits within the quirky style of that section. I like that you added it by the way. I love this article – cacahuate talk 01:43, 10 June 2007 (EDT)
I see the logic of putting it in "Get out", but I think it fits perfectly where it is. Plus I have an inappropriate fondness for the "Get out" section as it is now (I wrote it). :) - Todd VerBeek 10:05, 10 June 2007 (EDT)
Me too... let's leave 'em both! – cacahuate talk 15:45, 10 June 2007 (EDT)

Space Adventures

Jani, did you mean to remove them from Zero-G? Their website still lists it as a possibility... – cacahuate talk 04:21, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

As far as I can see Space Adv just resell Zero-G's flights -- if you look carefully, the flight schedules are 100% identical, and Zero-G claims to be the only commercial operator in the US. Jpatokal 05:24, 14 June 2007 (EDT)
Should've known, detective Jani's on the case! – cacahuate talk 12:18, 14 June 2007 (EDT)
