NASA spends $200,000 for trips to outer space

Are those vacations to the tropics and the Mediterranean turning stale for you? Well, now for $200,000, you could probably set off on a trip to the stars, and by that, we don’t meant Hollywood. For now, it’s just NASA who’ll set off on trips to the outer space though, carrying engineers, scientists, and equipment to low-gravity environments. After a tie-up with Virgin Galactic, XCOR and five other companies, NASA will send personal up to space, and it might just be a matter of time until space tourism finally turns into a dream come true! Maybe shortly ahead in the future, when your loved one asks you for the moon, you could simply set off on a trip there and bring back a cake-sized chunk!
