Private Lunar Flights Coming Soon
Flights to the moon could become a reality soon, for $100 million:
"I personally think that it's the biggest thing in private spaceflight. It would change the way the whole world thinks about private spaceflight. It is definitely doable for under the $200 million price tag," Anderson [president and CEO of Space Adventures] explained, thereby signaling a radical reduction in cost [emphasis mine] of any past piloted lunar flight.
Space Adventures is the company responsible for the recent tourist visits to the ISS and they are hoping to sign the first contracts later this year.
Another success for the market. The next step of course is to (try to) fend off the regulators.
