When I was a little kid I always looked at the moon and wished that a day will come when I will get a chance to go to moon. When Rakesh Sharma India's first astronaut to go on space, came for a live broadcast on Doordarshan, only TV channel in India then, we all remained glued to our black and white TV sets. I still remember Rakesh Sharma's famous lines from his space shuttle.
When our prime minister Smt. Indira Gandhi asked him how India looked from space, he said: "Sare Jahan se accha" (Best in the World). 
If I have grown up from a little boy to a computer professional, so has space travel. A time will come when you need not be an astronaut to travel to space, you can be a tourist. Over the period space travel is slowly becoming a reality and space tourism has immense potential to become a profitable business.
It is quite interesting to know that a website called Space travel has recenty introduced destination website for 'outer space'.The website claims that it it offers member-only benefits including discounts on space-related travel. 
The Space trip reviews section invites members to describe and post travel reviews of their experiences. These experiences or trips include among others, visiting a space center or museum, attending a space camp or launch event, experiencing weightlessness in an aircraft, or even visiting outer space itself.

A press release from the website quoting its Founder Kenneth Schweitzer, claims that “Space.Travel was created to fill a void in the burgeoning space tourism industry. With passenger space travel becoming a routine activity, outer space needed a destination website just like any other travel location. A one-stop website for all of your space trip planning.” 

“When people think about space tourism they initially imagine trips into outer space. However, millions of people a year attend a space-themed attraction or museum. Space.Travel provides a place to share all of these amazing experiences,” adds Schweitzer.

The website also offers daily space tourism news and a travel directory. The Space.Travel Directory is currently the only directory available that includes listings of space travel agents, space insurance providers, and space tour operators, says the press release.

For those interested about space the website has several interesting such in the form of videos and pix...for example celebrating birthdays in zero gravity plane....or animations about launching of space shuttle..

Are u ready for the experience?
