Potential space tourists, please take note

For those of you who have more cash than me, here's a reminder that you can still sign up for a space flight at www.virgingalactic.com for the low, low price of $200,000.

Oh yeah, and something else you might want to know:
A retired NASA engineer looking to develop an inexpensive way for people to travel to space might have to go back to the drawing board after one of his experiments exploded Saturday.
"It's just an experiment that went bad," police Chief Glenn Manis told the Galveston County Daily News.

Hopefully, the first space-tourist trip won't be described the same way.
