We all love traveling and try to visit as many cool places as possible. All those thrilling flights with a spectacular panorama of sunlit clouds in the window, foreign cities where everything is new to you, unforgettable tours around some ancient Aztec ruins, Medieval castles and other historical spots, breathtaking architecture, exotic cuisine and the very spirit of local life – it’s hard to find the right words to describe all this. But tell me, what can be more fascinating than… traveling in the open space?? And did you know that you can already do that?? Of course, it’s going to hit you in the pocket, but if you aren’t short of funds, you can book an orbital tour here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_tourism. There have been a total of 8 flights performed between 2001 and 2009 when the project was put on hold due to the increase in crew size. An estimated price of such an outing was around $20-40 million at the time. We can only guess how much it would cost us today…There is still hope for those dreaming to catch a glimpse of the open space, though: in 2017, two volunteers will be sent to the Moon and back free of charge as part of a scientific experiment! Who knows, perhaps, in a few decades you’ll be able to take a quick ride around Mars in your own rocket!
