Seats on Boeing spaceships for sale

2010-09-15 22:17

Chicago - Boeing has lined up a space tourism company to sell seats on the spaceship it wants to build to fly to the International Space Station.

Boeing says it has a deal with Space Adventures to market seats on the flights. Space Adventures currently sells seats on trips to the space station aboard the Russian-built Soyuz spaceship.

The Boeing CST-100 is still on the drawing board. But the company hopes to have the seven-person spaceship operating by 2015.

So far, seven customers have ridden on eight flights through Spacecraft Adventures. Nasa has said it wants private companies to handle flights to the space station, carrying a mix of astronauts and tourists.

    Man Oh man.... If I was filthy, stinking, rolling around in a pool of money that I had no idea what to do with, I would so pay a fortune to go up there. I can't think of anything more mind-blowing than viewing Earth from space.
