Hmmm... I wonder how much fuel, and therefore carbon emissions, it takes to get that thing up and passengers in to space?

They're not interested in what the adults have to say...

There's a link on the home page which says:

"If you are an adult you can respond to the consultation here" (http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/consultations/conDetails.cfm?consultationId=1543)

"A system error has occurred, we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."

I guess they don't care what parents might think!
