Another Tourist in Space

Texas millionaire Richard Garriott was launched into space aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft yesterday.  Richard Garriott is himself the son of former NASA astronaut Owen Garriott. In the same Soyuz spacecraft with Garriott is NASA astronaut Michael Fincke and Russian cosmonaut Yury Lonchakov.  They are due to dock with the space station tomorrow morning.  You can learn more about the adventure online at Richard Garriott’s own webpage http://www.richardinspace.com/ I wonder how many of you would take the trip if you had the millions of dollars to do so.
