What Money Can Buy? A Trip to Space!

Anousheh Ansari of Iran, according to Guinness World Records, became the first female space tourist on September 2006 when the Soyuz TMA-9 capsule blasted off for a 10 day visit to the International Space Station. Businesswoman Ansari has had a lifelong fascination with space and is thought to have paid $20 million for the experience.

Here's Ansari's space travel dream as she shares on her blog...

"A long, long time ago, in a country far, far away… there was a young girl who had her eyes fixed on the twinkling stars of the night skies over Tehran. Back then the air was not so polluted and you could see many stars in the night skies. Summer time, when they would set up the beds outside on the balcony to sleep, she would lay in her bed and look deep into the mysterious darkness of the universe and think to herself, What’s out there? Is someone out there awake in her bed, and gazing at her in the night sky? Will she ever find her… See her… Will she fly out there and float in the wonderful, boundless freedom of space?

Well, as fate would have it, yes…

If you had asked that young girl, do you want to fly to space? her answer would have been an Enthusiastic YES! If you had asked her, do you think you will fly, the answer would have also been a Hopeful YES! And now that moment is finally near…"
