Millionaire Gregory Olsen yearns for another trip in space

What has been the dream destination you had the chance to visit? Would you like to go back? Well if it’s on Earth, it seem plausible, but space travel? Scientist, entrepreneur, and millionaire Gregory Olsen from America, who sold off his company for a ticket worth $20million for a trip in space, wants to have another go at it, if he can that is. He’s the third every space tourist who made his first trip in 2005 courtesy International Space Station. If he does manage the feat, he will be the second person to do so. The first person to manage two space trips is American billionaire Charles Simonyi. He paid $25 million in 2007 and a staggering $35 million for his second stint

With designs like Astrium Space Jet and Lynx spaceship making the rounds, and with tickets for the Space Voyage sold-out until 2009 private space tours might just start full on! Olsen adds “When you fly over the Earth, there’s no sign of life, there’s nothing to indicate that there’s anything going on there – occasional jet trails, but other than that it just looks serene, perfect. When I was up there I just said, ‘Wow, I’m the luckiest guy in the world to be able to see this.'”
