Fly to the moon for $150 million

Want to take a trip to the moon? That’ll cost you $150 million, at least if you hitch a ride with Space Adventures. The space tourism company is offering a 16- or 17-day trip onboard a Russian spacecraft that will fly people around the moon and as close as 100 kilometers to the lunar surface. So far, two people are willing to pay the steep price; they’re set for takeoff in 2017, Discovery News reports.
