Travel Off-World

Let me clarify something right off the bat here.  When most people talk about ‘space travel’ they actually mean travel off world, beyond the atmosphere of the Earth for, isn’t it all space?

Here we are, on a rocky body orbiting an average star.  Talk about ‘space travel’!  We are spinning around and orbiting our Sun, all at once.  We travel fast and far, just by standing on the planet.

If you’re Sarah Brightman, you also intend to go up.

You want the ultimate (for now) spacer activity?  Pay for the privileged to travel to ISS (International Space Station) and spend 10 days in orbit.  It’s certainly doable, just ask Sarah.  If she goes, in 2015, she will be the eighth paying tourist to travel to an orbiting space station, and she bumps a NASA astronaut to spend just 10 days there.

Oddly, the Russians have cornered the market, nay, they have a fracking monopoly on access to ISS!

Too rich for you?  What about a sub-orbital flight at $200,000?  This brings up an excellent point for serious spacers.

When the time comes, will you be ready to go?

  1. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      Hi Mariana!

      This is a WordPress blog, basic twenty(ten? eleven?) theme which I customized somewhat.

      Choose to moderate all posts and nothing will get through without your approval.

      I chose WP for all the advantages it offers. Everything has pros & cons. :)

      Thanks for visiting!

    My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?

    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome site!
