NASA: "So, hey, listen! We want to put you in a tube-shaped spaceship, sending you for three years into deep space with no possibility to escape. And we are giving you no form of emergency escape beyond the moon. Are you in?"

Lots of volunteers: "Yeah, absolutely, where do I sign?"

In a less PC (read: more enlightened) world, there'd be a comedy skit about this where a bunch of women get sent to Venus in a spaceship shaped like a tampon -- and the mission fails because the crew kills each other by clawing each other's eyes out.

I guess we'll just have to settle for a bunch of gay astronauts going to Mars Uranus in a spaceship shaped like a dick.
