The space-age equivalent of the old cruise to nowhere—sail out into international waters and return—is now available for booking on Kayak.com, at prices ranging from £63-80,000 for a 40-minute trip from Curacao to Curacao.
The flights are being offered by XCor, one of several companies competing for rich space tourists. Passengers, one per flight, will take off horizontally, go vertical on rocket power to about 40 miles up and then glide down in a 'slow' sightseeing loop, landing again at the take-off airport. A choice of Curacao or the Mojave Desert is possible.
