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. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.
