Space Tourism - Wait Until 2008

This article says it's not a joke. It's going to happen in a couple of years or so.

Here's the catch -

There have already been three space tourists who have hitched rides on
Russian Soyuz spaceships to the international space station. Each paid 20
million dollars.

That's $20,000,000.00 for one vacation into space. What will the kids want to do next year when spring break rolls around. On a positive note, the person in the seat next to you may be very influential.

Just a thought.

I'm waiting for a sale.

Of course, in order to have a sale there has to be competition in the market, and in order to have competition space travel has to be in private hands.

I expect I'll be waiting a while...
