Astrium's Space Tourism Spacecraft

Planned jet to take tourists into space, AP

"European aerospace company EADS on Wednesday unveiled a model of a jet designed to take tourists into space, rocketing paying passengers to weightlessness at more than 62 miles above the Earth. EADS Astrium said it hoped the space jet which looks much like a conventional aircraft although it is outfitted with rocket engines will be operational by next year, with the first flight scheduled for 2012. Tickets are expected to cost $199,000-$265,000, said the company, which displayed a full-scale model in Paris."
