Space tourism – An out of this world experience

To date there have been just 7 space tourists but with the recent developments by private companies in commercial space travel this number is set to increase substantially.

These companies plan on taking passengers  on a sub-ortbital flight thats stretches 100km above the earths surface Kármán line which is said to be the border between Earth’s atmosphere and outer space. Flights are expected to last for about six hours and reach speeds up to Mach 3.

It’s said Sir Richard Branson’s company Virigin Galatic already has over 400 bookings and it’s expected that the first commerical flight will take place sometime in 2012.

So for a mere $200,000 you too can become a commercial astronaut on board the Virigin Galatic SpaceShipTwo craft.
