Space, the travel frontier

In the planning stages for 2012 is the world's first space hotel. To be known as the Galactic Suite, the out of this world hotel will offer a three-night orbit in space after a four month training period.
The pricetag? Oh, just over $4 million...

Meanwhile, for the frugal set millionaire Richard Branson will be offering a space flight via his Virgin Galactic for a mere $200,000 and has reportedly signed up 340 astronauts so far.
