I came across this today...

http://www.spaceadventures.com/

The only one that is close enough to being feasible for me is THE EDGE OF SPACE adventure for a measly $20,000 (compared to the other prices). If you want to actually go take an ORBITAL FLIGHT for a week is about $20,000,000 and if I remember correctly a SUBORBITAL FLIGHT is about $102,000.

Finally the USZeroG, which allows you to experience Zero Gravity, float and fly like the austronauts is going for about $3750 right here about 10 miles away from my home.

Any takers?

Same here, if I had the money to take a flight to space, I wouldnt think about it much. I am itching to get into that Edge of Space trip though. I called Steve earlier and I said...hey, I want to take this Edge of Space adventure. I mean it is SPACE, I want SPACE, I need SPACE! He said, dont I already give you enough SPACE?

Hey, how funny is that! Space news travel fast heh? There must be an outpoor of media coverage about this. I actually found out about this space traveling when I went to look through my Membership Points rewards on Amex. I need 1,500,000 points to redeem an Edge to Space Adventure. Ok, if I continue to spend money like crazy...maybe by the year 2060 I will have enough points to redeem it.

Hey, the $20,000,000 price doesn't bother me, but I'm afraid I'd get motion sickness .

MIG-25 - “EDGE OF SPACE” FLIGHT a d v e n t u r e s ®

TODAY, NO COMBAT AIRCRAFT CAN GO FASTER...
NO COMBAT AIRCRAFT CAN GO HIGHER...
PERIOD.

The most spectacular spaceflight training experience Space Adventures
offers, the MiG-25 is the highest flying and fastest combat aircraft in operation today. Nothing can simulate the view from space quite like the cockpit of a MiG-25 from a breathtaking height of 85,000 ft (25 km).
Nearly three times the altitude of Everest, your view directly overhead fades into the darkness of space. Below you, the curvature of the Earth is awesomely apparent, and the horizon is 715 miles (1100 km) across.
Flying at Mach 2.5, or one mile every two seconds, is one of the most
exhilarating experiences available anywhere.

TESTIMONIALS
“I am back home and absolutely drained with all the excitement of Thursday. My MiG-25 flight boldly took me where no cab driver has gone before :O) Watching my DVD I still can’t believe it is me sitting in that cockpit, I look as if I am in a Science Fiction movie. The experience has left me with an extraordinary feeling of “Did this actually happen?” I feel special, privileged, even emotional, and I know that when I show my friends the actual
photos from altitude, they will be confused to say the least because the photos look like they were taken from the Space Shuttle, and not a MiG-25… The man who inspired me by writing on his photograph, “To Arthur, reach for the stars” was Astronaut Story Musgrave, but I didn’t know how to, but you and Space Adventures has shown me
how to get half way to “My Stars”, and I will be forever grateful. My 3 trips to Moscow I was met by pure professionalism, I felt safe and secure in the knowledge that there was a team there to help at anytime… (and the new girl you sent to meet us is already a credit to S.A.). Please tell Eric Anderson (The Chief) that there are
a lot of dreams out there that need to be realized but they don’t know how, but he MUST get the S.A name up in lights, he has a DUTY to fulfill dreams and thank you and him for fulfilling mine… I was about to say it will feel rather strange now not needing to e-mail you anymore, but it will only be till after the summer, when I will
be back again and wishing to talk about my NEXT adventure, of course the RUSSIAN Zero GEE-WIZZ :O)…Hope to hear from you real soon and keep up the fantastic work.

Regards, Your Very Happy Client,
Art :O)”

lifetime and thanks to the Space Adventures staff, we had a lot of
reminders about that great experience.”
