Fly Me to the Moon... For Just $100 Million

Just a few days after the space shuttle Discovery successfully ended its nail-biter of a flight, we're now pondering the possibility of private citizens flying to the moon (on a honeymoon, perhaps).

Private space flight company Space Adventures will fly you and a partner on an orbital flight to the moon for only $100 million. The flight is being developed in a partnership with the Russian space agency, and could launch as early as 2008.

A little too rich for your blood? Not to worry... technology has a way of becoming cheaper. Remember when CD players were a thousand bucks?
