THIS IS COOL:
You don't have to pack your bags quite yet, but passenger travel to the Moon is on the flight manifest of a space tourist company.
The price per seat will slap your wallet or purse for a swift $100 million - but you'll have to get in line as the first voyage is already booked.
Space Adventures, headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, is in negotiations with the customers who will fly the first private expedition to circumnavigate the Moon.
"I hope to have those contracts signed by the end of the year," said Eric Anderson, Space Adventures' president and CEO.
I'd go, but I'm a few bucks shy of the ticket price. Maybe if I put up a special PayPal button . . . .
