...go into space?
So, hypothetically speaking, you're long in the tooth at this point. You got some grays in your hair showing through...you're working, and you have a child. Son, daughter, doesn't matter...
...anyway, they graduate from high school, or they're headlong through college or something, when they receive the opportunity to work for a privatized space industry. And there's tons to choose from by this point. From independent contractors, to whole companies that are built upon the need for common workers to space walk up there. Mining, Off-world maintenance, Cosmic Debris Defense, science/research, whatever demand they'll have at the time and whatever your kid happens to be qualified for...
Even with the risk of high exposures to radiation
Even with the risk of irreparable damage to their bodies
Even with the risk of getting shredded by space debris
Even with the risk of the space shuttle ferrying your child blowing up in the mesoshpere before it can reach it's destination due to less money being thrown around for reliable, sturdier shuttles to meet the high demand of traffic.
Even with the risk of co-worker harrassment in an isolated, sparsely law enforced workfield
Even with the risk of all kinds of causes of death...
...Would you be comfortable sending your kid up to space?
