Intro            

So, wanna take an out of this world thrill? Do you like to go to different places? Explore? Sure, you can go to Hawaii, or Yellowstone, maybe even Paris! Would you like to go somewhere different? Well, I’ll tell you about a very cool place, (and seriously, it is out of this world!) But if you want to get a blast of excitement, read on. I will tell you about interesting facts about this special place, history, the purpose, how it works, and cool facts.

History

How much does it cost for a tour of Space? According to Wikipedia, it would take about $20-35 million dollars in the US to take a tour of space. If you are lucky, you can sign some contracts with third parties to get and conduct certain research while you are in orbit. If you do that, the cost of seeing space up close or personal will be minimized. I would like to go to space but not for that amount of money. It is a ton of money spent just for some days in space!                                                                               Who have been some space tourists? According to Jessica Root, the first 7 space tourists’ were Dennis Tito, Mark Shuttle worth (what a great last name for the second space tourist!) Gregory Olsen, Anousheh Ansari (if you can say that!), Charels Simonyi, Richard Garriott and Guy Laliberté. BTW- 5 of the seven were American, at least a little bit.
