A trip to the moon and back is not such a far cry anymore and with companies taking the space as a serious tourism destination, why wouldn’t people start drawing their plans? Virgin Galactic has announced that it would soon be routinely flying tourists into low earth orbit. Space Adventures, however, is planning to take a bigger leap with tourist trips around the moon. The company has already sent seven tourists to the International Space Station for a few days. However, the estimated cost is staggering at around $150 million, but it will definitely be a weeklong trip that will be ‘out of this world.’ Plans are that the project should take off in three or five years.
