You are totally lying if you say that you never wanted to go in space. You would definitely be lying if you say you never wanted to go to moon and check Neil Armstrong’s footprints by yourself. ( or is it just me?!)
We all, at some point or other, in our lives aspire to be astronauts. We seek the thrill of going and exploring space. But also at some point or other, reality crops up and we end up becoming engineers instead.
Hey, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot go for a cool staycation in space. Not anymore, at least. Because, SpaceX is planning to send up to four private citizens into space to take a trip around Earth sometime at the end of 2021 or in early 2022. They will remain in space for 5 days.
Sounds cool, right? But don’t ask us that how much will it cost? Because Space X is keeping it a top secret. And considering that they had booked only the richest person of Japan in their previous promised mission to moon, this to and fro journey must cost billions, at least.
Don’t lose heart as soon yet, because just until last decade space travel was solely restricted to astronauts and professionals. Elon Musk has opened these doors for everyone else by establishing Space X.
SpaceX, founded in 2002 by Elon Musk, manufactures and launches rockets and spacecraft with the goal of lowering the cost of space travel and eventually enabling humans to colonize Mars.
So courtesy Elon, maybe in near future, you and I could book a round about ticket from Earth to Mars. Fingers crossed!!
