The Space Review spent some quality email time with Richard Garriott, discussing his upcoming space adventure and how it relates to Tabula Rasa. Garriott shares lots of thoughts on his ongoing astronaut training in Russia, the lack of familiar food, and few unexpected features of private space travel.
TSR: Were you able to paint your space suit a custom color like you can in TR?
Garriott: Actually, yes! There is a gentleman I have heard that has made everyoneÂs space suit since Gagarin. I hear that when you meet with him, itÂs sort of like a custom fashion designer session, and you get to select colors, style, and anything else you want!
