Boeing and Virgin Galactic Space Tours

Would You Take a Tour Through Space?

It's one thing to explore the stars with your feet planted firmly on the ground, yet it's a totally different ball game to see them up close from the comfort of a spaceship. Virgin Galactic has long been the front-runner in consumer space exploration, but now it seems that Boeing is getting in on the star tour action with its own commercial space capsule that is aiming to get passengers into space by 2015.

Sure, the cost of a trip on both of these spacecrafts is sky-high (ranging from $200,000 to up to $40 million), but if cost weren't an issue, would you sign up to take a tour through space?
