Angie, absolutely not. I have no wish to travel into space. And the billionaire space race isn't lighting up my life either. It doesn't sit well with the climate summits.

Though I admit that I can't help being pleased that Jeff Bezos is taking Wally Funk on his Blue Origin flight. She's an extraordinary woman and should have been a NASA astronaut, but it was only military pilots - no girls allowed - in the early days.
