If you were an astronaut, which mission would you pick?

Assume that NASA is undecided, but you're their man so you get to pick.

Poll coming in 5....4....3....2....1....

I picked Mars.

I'd love to be an astronaut, but I'm sure I don't have the right stuff.

Your plan is to send us up there and then disconnect your phone. Right?

I'd live on the moon, but I'd also like to be able to pick the people that come with me. I don't want you thinking it's a "practical joke" to send mememe up there with me.

Unless there is no law of the land and I can eject her into space and watch her explode. That would be cool.

I want to be on Apollo 13 so Tom Hanks can play me in a movie. That would be way cooler than actually walking on the moon.

Haha. Kick her in the gash and see how much hang time you can get.

I'm surprised that I'm the only so far who picked "asteroid miner." To me, that's got a lot of advantages: less time gone, doing something productive, and you get deep space without a 20-year commitment.

The other ones of keen interest to me would be the solar system circuit, the moon colonization, and the landing on Mars. I like the asteroid mining, though.
