Space Tourist to Blog From Final Frontier
Just when you thought your exoctic travel destinations were exciting, consider the latest endeavour by Microsoft billionaire, Charles Simonyi: he's headin' for space. While he's up there, Simonyi plans to -- amongst other things -- blog about his adventure.
It all starts this Saturday, when the Microsoft Word developer will blast off with a pair of Russians on a two-day journey to the International Space Station. He'll be there for 11 days, taking samples of the microbes living on the station, trying to fix a couple broken ham radios, and writing.
Simyoni hopes his trip will promote future space travel for civilians. Although, at the moment, it's a little cost prohibitive. The upcoming trip will set him back more than $20 million.
