Space tourism aims even higher

Space Adventures, a private space tourism company, is planning on expanding its offerings beyond low Earth orbit, and sending passengers on a trip around the Moon for a measely $150 million.

They’re not going to land on the Moon, unfortunately – getting a capsule out of two gravity wells is still too expensive for the private market, I guess.  But it’s good to see the private sector starting to go beyond LEO.
