A Vacation That Is Out Of This World, NASA Opens Travel To Space For Civilians

A step forward to dream going to space will soon become a reality, you do not have to be a astronaut to visit space. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will let civilians via tour and travel space program and board the International Space Station (ISS).

The travel to the space station will be handled by private companies namely Boeing and SpaceX. Travelling to space will be one of the coolest thing that a person can experience. Astronauts have been posting images of the earth from the ISS and will experience and see the same thing if you are there.

However, there’s a catch, this exciting adventure costs a lot money with a minimum estimate of US$35,000 (Php1.8million) per night stay in the ISS and once there you are able to stay up to 30 Earth-equivalent nights which includes food, communications and storage. US$35,000 multiplied by 30 nights, you the math.

The flight ride operated by Boeing and SpaceX costs US$58million (Php3 billion) per ride. If you are rich enough, this experience is once in a lifetime opportunity that is now a reality.

The trips to space are only limited on 2 trips per year as the space tourism will help NASA to fund new explorations in the coming years with their top plan to return to the moon by 2024.
