Prices for assorted trips-A rough guide please?
« on: 05/23/2011 11:50 AM »
Hi,
Im trying to get a vague idea of prices for the various commercial trips into space/near space and would really appreciate any input anyone could offer.
I believe the following to be correct:
Virgin SS2 flight to experience weightlesness for 5 minutes: $200,000

Flight in a Russian Air-Force plane to the 'edge of space' (as in what BBC's James May did): $18,000


Trip to the edge of space with 'Space Adventures' company: $150,000-$200,000

Trip to watch a rocket take off in Russia with 'Space Adventures':$12,000-$15,00m

Flight to experience weightlesness during Parabolas in America:$4,000

Please feel free to correct me as im often wrong. Equally, please do add any prices you know of!

Thank you in advance- B

Trip around the moon, $150 million
chuck - Toilet paper has no real value? Try living with 5 other adults for 6 months in a can with no toilet paper. Man oh man. Toilet paper would be worth it's weight in gold!

I thought the original Soyuz tourist seat prices from Space Adventures was around $20-30 million, but I don't know what the current rate is assuming a spare seat would be available.

Elasmotherium; hurlyburly Doggerlandic Jentilak steeds insouciantly gallop in viridescent taiga, eluding deluginal Burckle's abyssal excavation.
