Space tourism is not far off, but at the moment, only wealthy people can afford this adventure. Currently, many people dream of going into space and experience the total weightlessness! Perhaps, 20 years from now, space tourism will be as common as bus tours. Many modern scientists are working on designs of special space craft to travel to the stars and back. There is no doubt that space tourism will become very popular, in the future. Thanks to technical innovation, flights will be safe and comfortable, but at present, we only can dream about it. It might well be possible to fly to stars and stop-off at the Moon for all those who hunger for extreme sensations. Before too long, you could probably have your birthday party in Earth’s orbit.
Currently, only six people have visited the International Space Station as tourists: American, Dennis Tito - 2001; South African, Mark Shuttleworth - 2002; US citizen, Gregory Olsen - 2005; Anousheh Ansari - 2006; Charles Simonyi - 2007 and 2009 and Richard Garriott - 2008. They have paid between 20 and 30 million dollars to realize their dreams. But, it is not necessary to wait for future mass flights of tourists into Earth’s orbit; it is possible to start space training right now or just simply to experience something unique.
We offer a 10-day Space Training Tour of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC) in Star City Russia, where you will have a complex medical exam, theoretical lectures about the history of manned spacecraft, the psychological aspects of manned space flights, the basic principles of space navigation; training in the TsF-18 Centrifuge, the Hydrolab, Space Simulators, a Zero-Gravity flight and practice survival skills after landing. You will visit famous places such as Mission Control Center (MCC), The Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics and the Air Force Museum.
This training will help you learn about space flight and allow you to decide about your future space trip to stars. Regardless, we are positive that this experience will be one you will never forget.
