    Oh wait, you might get hit by an exploding bus while walking to work. Best to stay at home.

    But then, an exploding spaceship might also crash into your house at 20,000 km/hr. Hmm...
    Think of the bright side. A beautiful girl may also drop out of the exploding spaceship, crash through the roof and land on top of you while you are lying on your bed experiencing a hot wet dream.

    With such velocity and impact I highly doubt you will ever wake up from your wet dream. Bone-crushing orgasm perhaps?

    A Nikon D2Xs itself became an artificial satellite when it accidentally detached and drifted away from astronaut Suni Williams while on a spacewalk during STS-116. Probably reentered earth atmosphere by now.

    I think that family will soon boast of bringing onboard a limited edition FF with 100MP -- so as to outshine all other mere mortals.

    Frankly speaking, I don't mind paying few millions to get on the front most nose area sit at the shuttle if I got hundreds of million to spare. I see it cheaper as the FIRST Singaporean to enter space. (Unless the shutter nose don't enter space first, I cannot imagine how it moves.) The second thing is to publish a book when I reach land. (WootSK & Family, the FIRST Singaporean to enter space)

    I think are always a few photographers hanging around Ponggul Beach at all hours waiting for it to land?

    "So he is going to become, or he and his family will become, the first family from Asia to become astronauts together," Attenborough said.
    ......
    He said nine out of nearly 500 tickets sold worldwide had been bought by customers in Singapore, which has one of Asia's highest concentrations of millionaires."

    If we take away the family of four. There are another 5 dudes from Singapore that will be flying out to space. Being the first family out does not mean they are the first Singaporean out.

    No. The product/service is consumed outside of Singapore.
