Paris Hilton an intergalactic space cadet

Paris Hilton in LondonA handful of celebrities — and a variety of other people with far too much money on their hands — have paid a reported $200,000 deposit each for a seat on an intergalactic flight on Richard Branson’s first-ever commercial space flight, Virgin Galactic. Paris Hilton, William Shatner, Sigourney Weaver and Tom Hanks are four of the 157 people who have signed up. However, Paris Hilton may be having second thoughts, according to Bang! Showbiz. She says, “I’m very scared to do it. What if I don’t come back? With the whole light years thing, what if I come back 10,000 years later, and everyone I know is dead? I’ll be like, ‘Great. Now I have to start all over.'” The first flight is planned for 2010.

    Its a good thing..If space flight goes commercial the technology with boom if there is a market..so the best way to improve the rate and quality of space travel for humans is getting the rich people all out there so they can make money to make more flights. The price would come down once they start really making money, the same thing happened with planes a long time ago.

    I’m praying Virgin Galactic leaves her behind in spaces on the way back. One less annoying b**** would do everyone GOOD!!!

    im jealous.
    its not fair that the price of a space trip is so high.
    last time i checked, NO ONE owned the space. and now i will never be able to experience it because i wasn’t lucky enough to be born into a rich family.
    this world sucks.

    All I can say is “Unbelievable”. How could anyone be this dumb? In the words of Jeff Foxworthy, “Here’s your sign”….

    She doesn’t belong on a spaceship anymore than she belongs trekking thru a swampy jungle in the Amazon. Everything to this girl is a novelty.
    Oh lookit ‘lil Paris getting space-sick and puking on her ‘lil Prada handbag which she’ll undoubtedly bring with her..
