As of 2009, orbital space tourism opportunities are limited and expensive,
with only the Russian Space Agency providing transport ... at the moment that is.
More affordable (relatively speaking) suborbital space tourism is viewed as a
money-making proposition by several other companies, including Space Adventures, Virgin Galactic, Starchaser,and others. Most are proposing vehicles that make suborbital flights peaking at an altitude of 100-160 kilometres.Passengers would experience three to six minutes of weightlessness, a view of a twinkle-free starfield, and a vista of the curved Earth below.
Mojave Spaceport, California. 800 press, future astronauts and VIP guests gathered
in the desert for a press conference and to view the roll out of the world’s first
commercial spaceline. Bookings are open and tickets cost $200,000, deposits start from $20,000, so if you're interested now would be a good time to start saving :)
As the viability of commercial space travel gets closer to reality we can expect
a number of funky new designs emerging to lure potential space tourists.
So if you’re wealthy enough to be planning a trip to the moon or space in general
then there is no doubt that you are going to want the ultimate of lunar luxury.
How could you expect any less out of a multi-million dollar trip?
