We’re not that far away when it will be possible to take a trip to the Moon. At the very least we should be able to get into near space for a relatively low sum, perhaps the equivalent of taking a flight on the now defunct Concorde.
Currently space tourists are paying about US$20 million for a trip (which is about half of what a Concorde aircraft would cost you back in 1977).
I would love to go to Space. I’m waiting for Branson to get Virgin Galactic to where the price comes down enough for me to afford it. If you go to the website you can book a seat (:-)). The trip to Space that Jonah takes is based on a Virgin Galactic flight.
