It isn’t exactly a steal, but then, it is a trip to space we’re talking about here.

The arrival on the market of space tourism companies such as Virgin Galactic and SpaceX could bring the price of a ticket on board one of these flights to as little as £7,000 within the next twenty years, a veteran astronaut claims.

Dr Donald Thomas, who took part in four missions on the Columbia and Discovery shuttles, told the Times that by 2030 space tourism would no longer be the preserve of the super-rich.

‘I expect that in the next couple of years Virgin Galactic will begin their sub-orbital space excursions, allowing tourists the chance to see the Earth from 85 miles up, viewing the curvature of the Earth and the total blackness of the sky in space,’ he said.

‘Prices for these trips are approximately $220,000 (£153,000). While still expensive, the trips are much more affordable than paying the Russians $65m for a trip to the ISS (International Space Station). I also expect that SpaceX, Boeing and a few other companies will follow when tourist trips to and from the ISS are firmly established.

‘It is difficult to predict future prices for these trips, but I would anticipate within a decade or two prices will drop to the $10,000 (£7,000) to $20,000 range.’

A seat on one of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic flights costs $250,000 (£170,000). Some 700 people, including Hollywood A-listers and chart-topping singers, have already bought tickets.

Despite a number of setbacks, including the fatal crash of of SpaceShip Two craft, Dr Thomas believes the company will bounce back.

‘Once the needed redesigns are completed, tested, and the safety of the system verified, commercial flights will commence,’ he said.

4 Vlogs a week (MON, TUES, WED & FRI) FUNNY VLOGS, FUNNY NEWS, FULL MOVIE REVIEWs, FRIENDLY ADVICE & generally try to make you SMILE!

1. The dates 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12 all fall on the same day of the week during any one year.

They’re called doomsdays, which are part of an algorithm designed to tell you the day of the week that any date of the year falls on.

2. The official color of the universe is “Cosmic Latte” (#FFF8E7).
The official color of the universe is “Cosmic Latte” (#FFF8E7).

In 2001, Johns Hopkins astronomers Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry determined that the color of the universe was a greenish white, but they soon corrected their analysis in a 2002 paper, in which they reported that their survey of the color of all light in the universe averaged a slightly beigeish white. The survey included more than 200,000 galaxies, and measured the spectral range of the light from a large volume of the universe.
3. A Swedish couple named their kid “Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116.” The name is pronounced “Albin.”

They claimed it was “a pregnant, expressionistic development that we see as an artistic creation.” Sweden fined them 5,000 kronor.

4. In 1938, Adolf Hitler was Time magazine’s Man of the Year and in 1939, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

World War II began in 1939.

5. There are no clocks in Las Vegas casinos.

(The reason? To get you to lose track of time and keep gambling all of your cash away.)

6. Some people claim an episode of Johnny Bravo predicted 9/11.

In this scene from a Johnny Bravo episode that aired on the Cartoon Network on April 27, 2001, a movie poster appears to show a burning tower emitting a smoke cloud with the ominous words “COMING SOON.”

7. A “dancing plague” killed people in Strasbourg in 1518.
A “dancing plague” killed people in Strasbourg in 1518.

A “dancing mania” began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg for about four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Some of these people eventually died from heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion.
8. Harry Nilsson’s song “Coconut” (“she put the lime in the coconut,” etc.) has only one chord in the entire song. It is the only song without any chord changes to reach the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

It reached No. 8 in 1972.

9. Applying a male’s underarm sweat to a female’s lips can help women relax, boost their mood and help regulate their menstrual cycle.

…and it tastes…great?

10. The USSR requested a white-colored Coca-Cola in the 1940s so that it looked like vodka.

Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov requested a clear version of the drink so that he wouldn’t be seen drinking Coca-Cola in public, as it was regarded in the Soviet Union as a symbol of American imperialism. To fill his request, a chemist removed the soda’s caramel color, and they put the drink in a clear bottle with a white cap and red star. Fifty cases were sent over.

11. Caligula, the emperor of Rome from 37 to 41 CE, ordered his troops to go to war with the sea.
Caligula, the emperor of Rome from 37 to 41 CE, ordered his troops to go to war with the sea.

He made them bring back seashells as “plunders of war,” indicative of his victory against Neptune.

13. Tiger sharks’ fetuses fight, and sometimes cannibalize, each other in the womb. The survivor is born.

14. If you eat a polar bear liver, you’ll probably die.

Their livers contain a toxic (to humans) amount of vitamin A.

15. Shoppers are far more likely to buy French wine when French music is playing in the background of a store, and German wine when German music is playing.

16. The national anthem of Greece has 158 stanzas.

17. Marilyn Monroe had a higher IQ (163) than that of Albert Einstein (160).

18. Sloppy doctors’ handwriting accounts for 7,000 deaths a year.

Get paid to stay in bed: Nasa recruits couch potatoes for microgravity study

Does staying in bed sound like your dream job?

Nasa is currently recruiting a number of willing volunteers to spend 70 days doing very little at its Houston headquarters.

The couch potatoes will get paid around £3,000 a month as part of the US space agency’s research into the effects of microgravity on the human body.

‘Of all the potential challenges crew members encounter in the space environment, microgravity has proven to be one of the most difficult to mimic in an experimental setting,’ explains Nasa.gov.

‘Researchers and engineers are studying bed rest as an experimental analog for space flight because extended exposure to a head-down tilt position can duplicate many of the effects of a low-gravity environment.’

JSC2008-E-040148 (7 May 2008) --- Two test subjects participate in a bed rest research project at a facility in Galveston, Texas, not far from NASA's Johnson Space Center.    As part of the Flight Analog Research Unit (FARU), NASA maintains a dedicated bed-rest study facility at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. The facility is equipped with beds that can be adjusted into positions that reproduce the effects of different gravity levels on the human body. By manipulating these and other variables, the FARU team works to gather data and develop countermeasures that will be used to ease the effects of reduced gravity on future long-duration space missions.

Successful candidates will stay in a tilted bed 24 hours a day as part of the 70-day project, where they can play computer games, surf the internet or watch TV.

Researchers will then monitor how long-term confinement to a reduced gravity environment effects muscle and bone strength, cardiovascular function and mental health.

The ‘pillownauts’ will undergo a two-week rehabilitation period once the study is complete.
