Go to the Moon for a Cool $1.5 Billion: Feel free to whistle at that price tag at any time. It might be the moon, but that’s still five zeroes too big for even a house. Of course, this price isn’t too far off the mark for what NASA or the ESA might need for their own space missions so we can’t be too outraged. There are going to be a whole lot of start-up costs involved in the world’s first forays into space tourism, and it’s not surprising that those factors will put it out of most of our budgets. However, the company offering these rides to the moon is supposed to start fulfilling their promise in 2020, so maybe some of us will live to see it become more reasonably affordable.
