Online - Tourism (Good)
Two Articles, Two Pricetags
One future
by Carol Pinchefsky
According to a recent space.com article, flights to space that now cost US$20 million per person may eventually drop to US$100,000.

A New Scientist magazine article, however, estimates that the price may fall to US$15,000 per ticket.

The first price reflects space tourism costs in the near future, while the second price depends upon technology that has yet to be built.

Both articles describe space tourism as an actual real-world event. And now science fiction writers will have to broaden their scope when creating their futures.
