on Virgin Galactic's first trip into space - so he can fulfill a childhood dream. The movie star has been flying high ever since he played an astronaut in The Right Stuff
; the film inspired him to become a qualified jet pilot.
Currently without his own plane, Quaid admits he has a new dream.
He explains, "The ultimate would be to fly into space. What's the price down to on the Virgin Atlantic space shuttle? Like, $200,000 or something like that? It's almost getting to be reasonable. They should have at least two orbits with an in-flight meal and all that stuff."
