One Giant Step


On July 20th, 1969, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first humans to ever land on the moon. Relatively speaking, the journey was quick – 3 days to reach lunar orbit and another day to land on the surface. But with speeds of about 24,000 miles per hour, there’s hardly enough time for a a meal, movie or SkyMall purchase.

In December of this year, Richard Branson and his two adult children will venture off on a 2-hour “space” trip in his sub-orbital, air-launched SpaceShip Two. His goal for 2014 is to open space travel to ordinary passengers…willing to pay an extraordinary price of

"Hotel Orbit"

“Hotel Orbit”

$200,000 per seat for an experience of a lifetime. Richard, founder and chief of the Virgin Group, states, “The initial flights will be sub-orbital, which will give people a taste of space. From there we’ll go into orbital flights and maybe one day hotels in space.”

I must say, I’m not sure if my curiousness (or cache) to jet off to a cosmic Ritz Carlton outweighs my craving to be beach bound in Bali or Belize.   What would I possibly pack for a whirlwind weekend that’s literally “out of this world?”  Moon boots?

Whatever I chose as my galactic getaway gear, I would unequivocally carry it all in a weightless weekender.
