Space Adventures offer flights to the Moon

US company plans to offer space flight tours including a breathtaking trip around the moon.
For $150 million per person, per trip, one US company has partnered with the Russian Federal Space Agency to take people up into space. Two individuals at a time will be launched with one Russian mission commander to spend 10 days aboard the International Space Station before going around the moon and returning home.
Fifty years after the first American astronaut rocketed into space, one commercial spaceflight company is hoping to push the envelope even further, with tourist trips around the moon. And now they plan to use a bigger spaceship.

Your reply to dannielost above seems like your barking at him for not 'reading' the post correctly. It's a harsh read for sure. This post is in the conspiracy section, don't know why you don't think it is. Maybe you didn't read it right? Who cares if someone asks the question if they can see Appolo stuff while flying around. That question seems obvious enough for anyone willing to pay that amount of money to fly there in the first place. Like it wasn't on your mind? You would never think in a million years that you might see the landing sites? Come on... Just make sure you look in conspiracies... [More]

This thread is in "Space Exploration and Spaceflight". It was moved shortly after the thread started. You can scroll to the top of the screen and verify it yourself.

This post is in the conspiracy section, don't know why you don't think it is. Maybe you didn't read it right? Unfortunately, you are incorrect. This is the Space Exploration and Spaceflight section. That's why I don't think it is in the Conspiracy section. Who cares if someone asks the question if they can see Appolo stuff while flying around.

No, you were comment without reading the article properly: It also seems you don't know much about how long it takes to reach orbit after launch, it's not half a day, for a Soyuz it's about 9 MINUTES. i wasnt commenting on the article. i was commenting on the issue of bone loss. which is a problem but not a bad problem until you have been up there for a month or longer. the iss has exercise equipment to make this less of an issue. i am sure that if these people put their own station(hotel) up they will include exercise equipment too. since most hotels on earth already offer them anyways.

Dang! At 17 days and $150,000,000 that's $6,000 per MINUTE!

This post is in the conspiracy section, don't know why you don't think it is. Maybe you didn't read it right? I read it perfectly. There two little clues as to which section this is in. The first is towards the top of the page, where you will see this: If it was in the conspiracies section it would say this: Board Index News, Politics and Current Affairs Conspiracies & Secret Societies Space Adventures offer flights to the Moon The second clue is in the conspiracies section itself, where there is a link to this topic. That link looks like this: Notice the word "MOVED" next to the link. ... [More]

if i had the money i would go there for sure.there is nothing better than going to space. I hope sometime in the future, space traveling will become more convenient and affordable. This has been my motivation of becoming a physicist. It's just a matter of time before we get caught up to the alien's technology.

£150m !!! Come on, be sensible. For that price all of us could invent something that does the job for that kind of money.

£150m !!! Come on, be sensible. For that price all of us could invent something that does the job for that kind of money. Interesting. If I was a multi-billionaire, the cost of the flight would not be important to me. Some people regard climbing Mount Everest in a similar way ... but the dollar value is different. If I was young, fit and filthy rich -- I'd book a passage. Karlis
