Book Your Vacation in Space with the World’s First Space Travel Agent

Space tourism to become the new black 1 photo
The push by several companies to make space travel safe for the masses will soon enough cause the rise of never bofore seen businesses. Although humanity is still decades, if not more, away from becoming a spacefaring race, the future will belong to those who prepare in advance.
Inspired by promises made by SpaceX, Blue Origin or Virgin Galactic to offer space travel to all those willing and able to pay, a UK-based company announced this week the launch of probably the world’s first space travel agency.

The British web-based services marketplace called Bark launched this week a website where those interested in taking a space trip in the not so distant future can express their interest by signing up for updates.

Bark says it decided to this after an impressive number of people have sent inquiries about the possibility of space travel.

Those registering for updates will be notified when packages are available to book and then contacted to discuss options and dates.

Bark’s agency will function as any other travel agency does, taking care of flight times, accommodation and entertainment packages.

“Being an astronaut is a childhood dream for so many people, and while it’s not always attainable for everyone because it’s quite a difficult profession to get in to, this gives people the chance to experience it for a few weeks at leisure,” said Bark’s co-founder Kai Feller.

Before deciding to register, keep in mind that space travel is not your average trip to the seaside. Although the particularities of such a trip have not yet been established, it’s very likely one day in space will require weeks of medical examination, flight preparation and training.

On the other hand, whoever has the money for such a trip -one Virgin Galactic ticket to space costs $250,000 - probably has the time to do it too.
