Cheaper trip to the stars

Posted By: CJAD · 2/1/2013 8:39:00 PM

Canadians dreaming about becoming a space tourist now have another choice.

Space Expedition Corporation and X-Cor Aerospace have signed a deal with Quebec travel agency Uniktour to offer suborbital flights in the Quebec market.

A similar deal is in the works for the rest of the Canadian market.

Uniktour president Philippe Bergeron says the cost of a trip on the X-Cor spaceplane is cheaper than what's being offered by Virgin Galactic.

The price tag with Uniktour is said to be 95-thousand dollars.

A flight on Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo, which will carry six passengers and two pilots, will cost 200-thousand dollars per person.

The X-Cor Lynx will have only one pilot and one space tourist passenger.
