Virginia-based Space Adventures have revealed plans to offer people a trip around the Moon for a mere $100,000,000. The same company caused outrage
between NASA and the Russian Space Agency in 2001 when they arranged for civilian Mr Tito to visit the ISS aboard a Russian capsule.
Two passengers will join a Russian pilot for a trip lasting from 10 to 21 days, depending on whether they stop at the International Space Station.
Space Adventures says its research suggests that between 500 and 1,000 people around the world could afford to undertake the trip, which could go
ahead as early as 2008.
Eric Anderson, CEO of Space Adventures, says the timing of the announcement - a day after the landing of the Space Shuttle - was not a dig at Nasa.

I wanna go!
Im sure this will cause outrage once again at NASA, and only right IMO.
NASA cant even get fully trained astronauts into Earth orbit on a regular basis at the moment and the this company are flaunting the fact that they
will be taking civilians on a trip around the Moon using Russian equipment!
I bet the Russians are loving every minute of this!
