What kid doesn’t have dreams of floating in space with the world under your feet? Well Space Adventures has just the opportunity you’ve been searching for!

Space Adventures offers ordinary citizens the opportunity to travel in space on missions with certified astronauts. Or you can charter “weightless flights” for a party of up to 15 people that will simulate life in space for about an hour. Now, it may take you half a lifetime to save up, but these are the opportunites you may choose from:

Orbital Spaceflight
* Orbit the Earth every 90 minutes
* Stay in space for 10 days
Missions include:
*ISS “Taxi-mission” where you go up with a crew to relieve those who have been stationed on the satellite long-term and bring them back home.
*Private Missions where you can create your very own space mission dedicated to scientific research, education or just the thrill of spaceflight.
*Or a Spacewalk Mission where you can be the 1st private citizen to walk in space.

To be apart of any of these mission you will become a fully flight qualified and equipped cosmonaut. PRICE: $3 Million

Suborbital Spaceflights
*Get launched 62 miles above the Earth
*Includes a 4 day training process that happens before launch day that will familiarize you with the flight program, critical vehicle systems, flight operations, zero-gravity conditions, in-flight accelerations and spaceflight safety procedures.

There are two spaceports from which launches occur United Arab Emirates and Singapore.

PRICE: $102,000 (includes $4,000 cancellation insurance)

Space Adventures also offers other space like activites such as: Launch Day Tours, Zero Gravity Flights and Spaceflight Training which range in price from just over $4,000 to $89,500.

How about a weightless flight activity for the next family reunion only $135,000 for 15 people (plus 5% tax because the government must get their piece of the pie) if launched from the US. Or save a few bucks and fly over to Russia where the same thing is $64,750. Either way its sure to be a memory that won’t soon be forgotten.

How’s that for a vacation to make all your family, friends, and neighbors jealous!

  2. I don’t think I’m ready for the space travel yet. I might get lost in the big black hole.
