DailyDirt: Space Tourism vs Working In Space

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Even though there are less than a handful of ways for people to get into space right now, there may be a few more options in the near future to get close to space or into low earth orbit. If you have the resources, you could just book a seat on a Soyuz for $20-70 million. But for a bit less, you can book a trip on various vehicles without a decades-long track record. Or… you could be paid to be an astronaut if you have the skills, but the odds of getting selected are pretty slim.
