Space Tourism

By Linda Tancs

Surveys show that space tourism is very popular.  Alas, only those with $20 million or so to spare can actually partake in a trip to the international space station.  For the “average” traveler, the closest thing to space travel was probably Concorde.  At an altitude of 60,000 miles, you got the same “Star Trek” effect.  Double the distance, and you can train for Virgin Galactic.  Beam me up, Scotty.
