Space exploration: Can you go on vacation to space?

Did You Know: Space – Can you go on vacation to space?

So far, fewer than 600 people have traveled into space. Of those, only a few have not been scientists.

At the moment, lots of companies are developing new ways to send us on space vacations.

Wish you were there…

One day you could be able to see the Earth from space, and in the future, people could even explore faraway worlds in the solar system.

Space cruise

Using pressurized capsules, high-altitude balloon rides may take tourists to the edge of space. This is Voyager, made by World View Enterprises.

How else will we get to space?


Virgin Galactic is one of a few companies developing spaceships to send tourists into space. The trips would last a few hours and passengers would get to feel weightless.
