    i THINK you need some sort of permission to go into space from the u.s. government....or to even launch a rocket for that matter.

    dont quote me tho, but i remember hearing or reading somewhere that it is against the law to go into space without the u.s. governents approval....

    Why would you need permission? the us gov does not own anything outside the land of the US thats like saying you can't live on a boat in the middle of the ocean

    can anyone say they own the ocean 400 miles out? nah

    now it might be a different story if they are trying to blast off from the US into space
    they might need to talk over to mexico in order to do that =)

    no no, im serious dude...

    my mind is (was before i smoked and snorted my last remaining brain cells to oblivion) a treasure trove of useless trivia....


    im almost 100% sure that you do need some sort of permission from the u.s. government (if you live in the u.s.) to go into space....

    im not sure exactly what part of that is truth....but i guarantee you if someone looks it up, they will find im right.

    sorry, too lazy to look it up.

    actually, i could care less whether or not u guys believe me.....

    but, trust me on this one :thumbsup:

    Hes right, you need permission from the US government to go into space from *US SOIL*. Just like you need a permit to fly an aircraft in US Air Space.

    I could believe it. There's probably hundreds of spy aircraft up there that they don't want you to see. Somebody has to keep an eye on the aliens and keep it quiet...... :)

    I did say that!

    that does not mean you can't go out of the country to do it and Im guesing "did not read the link" they are doing it outside this country
