Space Tourism

Are you a college student? Have you considered study abroad? Our Communication Arts & Sciences group leaves for seven weeks in Rome in early May. You are too late to sign on for this year, but there’s always next year. On the other hand, you might consider space tourism, for prices starting at about $20 million.

From the New Republic: The first female space tourist was U.S. entrepreneur Anousheh Ansari. According to Space Adventures, Ansari took Japanese businessman Daisuke Enomoto’s place in 2006, after he failed a medical exam prior to his scheduled takeoff. MAXIM MARMUR/AFP/Getty Images.
