If you have a spare $750 Million or £466 Million lying around, you could treat yourself to a trip to the moon! However, the average person reading this will not have that sort of cash, and you’re probably having trouble getting your head around those sorts of figures anyway.
Whilst it appears that “moon tourism” is a due to become a reality, it will be limited to those of us that are lucky enough to be part of the elite rich. However, the idea does intrigue me. At the moment, if you do take a trip like this, you’ll be treated to a little walk on the moon, and then you’ll be brought home again.
This all sounds very nice, but even if I had the money, I could think of better things I would spend it on. What it does prove is that technology is still moving in terms of travel, and that’s what interests me. For now, it will be an expensive trip just so you can show off to your friends that you’ve done something Neil Armstrong did (or didn’t, whichever side of the fence you sit on).
But, it makes me wonder, how long is it going to be before the human race is using the moon as place we can move to? Is it possible that one day, there will be removal companies offering services to help you move to the moon? I’m sure I will no longer be a part of this planet when this starts to happen, but I really do think it might become a reality.
Having said that, why would you want to live on a rock that has no atmosphere, and therefore, no climate to speak of? But then, how long would it take for you stop marvelling at the view which would be of our dear planet earth?
