If so, where?

I would love to walk on the moon.

I would if I could just snap my fingers and be there for about a half hour just to see the earth... Then straight back home.

Yes!

I'd even take a one way trip to colonize one of the planets.

I'd love to be far enough out to see the entire globe looking as if it is hanging there.

Yes. I'd like to go to the moon or even just earth orbit.

Absolutely! I'd go anywhere as long as I wouldn't have to connect through Atlanta.

Definitely! It's been on my bucket list for years, don't know if it will happen though! It could be a landing or just a cruise, I don't care but it would be cool to experience zero gravity out beyond earths atmosphere. And if I got to drive or sit in a little car and ride around on the moon, I don't really care what form of fuel or energy it runs on.

I would!

Not sure if there's still all that training involved though, I want to go, I just don't want to go through the training. Purchase a ticket then hope on a spaceship and away I go.

Yeah, I'd like to go, mostly to look back and see the Earth all at once.

Actually, I've been wondering, ever since 1969, how it must feel to look at the moon and go, "yep, been there."

I'd orbit around Jupiter or Saturn. Must look AWESOME when you're closer to it.

I would give almost anything I had to be able to go into space. For now I have to settle for the Stratosphere.

I'd love to go to Mars. My Grandfather had read Percival Lowell and told me about how Lowell thought he saw canals on Mars and we would speculate on whether there had ever been liquid water on Mars and such. Even though I knew it was a trick of the eyes I drew copies of Lowell's sketches just to feel a connection.

I think it would be a pretty spare existence but I'd love to go if we ever set up a colony there. I'd bring cards and a ball., I've always wondered how flourishing and jugglery would change in no (and reduced) gravity.

Where else can you go but into space?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The only juggling you could do without gravity is the type where you snatch the balls out of the air. Anything else won't work becasue not only will the balls not fall, they will keep going up and out of your reach. Dribble juggling might work. I saw a guy at Cirq Du Soliel do that once with small rubber balls. He bounced them against the floor repeatedly. But again, standard Juggling will fail.

ClintonMagus, Too cool.

Cliffg37, I agree with your assessment. The juggling we see is based on where we live. If conditions changed so would the Jugglery. Things still have mass in zero G and I think there would be more of a reliance on mass meeting mass as in parts of contact juggling. I guess it would be like ball herding. Juggling isn't about being told what would work. Even for a poor juggler like myself, it is about getting in there and playing with it to see what will happen.

What else is the play you see Astronauts doing in zero G if not Jugglery? Onward and outward.
