The world is a beautiful place to travel but do you ever wonder how it is to travel outside it? Commercial space travel is not possible in the past but it is now. You can actually travel to space if you really want it. You do not need to be a part of an elite group with death defying training just to get there on top.

If you are looking for an out-of-this-world experience, space travelling is available but it is not for everyone. There are conditions that you must meet. If you are a Singaporean who can spare US$100,000 you will do. However, it does not end there. You also need to be healthy and mentally prepared. If you meet the conditions, then you can move on to the next phase – book it.

For more information about space travel, please refer below.

  • Who is in charge? There is a group that believe commercial space travel is possible in this time. In fact, the group is close to making space travel a reality. XCOR Space Expeditions is a commercial space travel company that is based in United States. They are now polishing their XCOR Lynx Mark II which is expected to bring individuals out to space by the end of 2015.

  • What lies ahead? The spacecraft is about 8.5 meters long, 7.3 meters wide and 2.2 meters tall. Only two seats are available. One for the pilot and the other for the space traveller. You will not be lonely because you can help the pilot with the controls. The take-off will be in Curacao, a Caribbean island. The best part is upon returning, you can ask the pilot to steer the aircraft towards your favourite spot be it the Great Wall or the Grand Canyon.
  • How long is the travel? The round-trip flight is only under an hour. In three minutes, you will see yourself in space. After reaching the space, the craft will only hover for over six minutes. This will give you opportunity to experience weightlessness plus you can view earth on top. The next thing that you do not want is to go home but you must. You will travel back home for about 40 minutes.
  • Where can you go to avail such? For Singaporeans who want to avail this, they should contact Crystal Time which is Singapore’s official distributor.

What are you waiting for? If you have lots of money to spare, do not deprive yourself of this amazing opportunity. You will see how the earth looks like in space. You can even claim that you are an astronaut because you actually travelled in outer space.
