I received a promotional offer today from Virgin America to attend the premier roll-out of Virgin Galactic’s amazing spaceship launch vehicle – the WhiteKnight (WK2) “mothership”.
The whole thing gives me the heebie jeebies. I am by no means afraid of flying, in fact I quite enjoy the whole experience–airport included. I love sci fi and NOVA specials. Yet for no real reason the idea of actual spaceflight gives me a straight up panic attack.
Virgin Galactic is upsetting on some really primal level and I really don’t know why…any thoughts?
