Best quote from the European Space Agency: ESA will select two of the six crew members. "So far, 4,600 people have applied. Most say that they've been interested in space flight since childhood but for personal reasons haven't got round to it," an ESA spokeswoman said. Sounds like it will be the mother of all big brothers, without the sex and swearing (well, maybe not) in a less colorful and cramped house. Any submariners here who fancy a long (imaginary) cruise?
