Soon, everyone will be an astronaut for 15 minutes...

Andy Warhol said that soon everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. It used to be that anyone who went into space would be famous, but that may not be true for long, with the coming era of private tourist jaunts into space -- ironically, flights that will actually spend a bit less than 15 minutes in space.
Anyway, this website I came across, for a guy who hopes to become the "Ireland's first astronaut", gives an interesting glimpse of how people see their hopes of coming fame and glory in the post-SpaceShipOne era. There may be quite a bit of this kind of thing in the next few years.
