Want to Go into Outer Space? $100,000 Pleaseposted by Robson Lee at 8/24/2006 04:59:00 PM
Sub-orbital ride: $100,000
10-day trip to the ISS: $20 million
18-day ISS mission with a cosmonaut-guided spacewalk: $35 million
A flyby around the far side of the moon: $200 million
Now, I know several people in my former profession who could easily afford the sub-orbital ride (it's less than a year's salary) and even a few who could afford the ride around the moon without breaking a sweat.
