Someday, Alice, bang, zoom, straight to Low Earth Orbit. Wired is reporting that Origin founder Richard Garriott is finally headed to the International Space Station - possibly as a promotion for Tabula Rasa... which seems hard to swallow given the $30 million pricetag for space tourism flights - enough to produce Wing Commander IV nearly three times over.
Nevertheless, Garriott has been interested in space tourism for years and was heavily involved in making the concept a reality at the turn of the century. His father, Owen Garriott, was one of NASA's Group 4 scientist-astronauts. Owen spent two months on Skylab in 1973 and then flew aboard Columbia on the first Spacelab mission in 1983. Confirmation of Richard Garriott's trip should come in the next month.
