On Friday, NASA announced their plans to promote space tourism for a mere $35,000 per night, likely with a 30 day minimum night stay, lol. Oh, that’s plus airfare and amenities like food, storage, communications, and I assume air. The total would be nearly $50 million per seat according to this Washington Post article.
My Cosmic Cowboys and their very own, Bezos/Branson/Musk spacepreneur named Duncan Janson, have been preparing and succeeded (mostly) for their own version of space tourism in my Cosmic Cowboys series.
The first book is Space Cowboys & Indians. It’s a fun sci-fi adventure story with a splash of spice. You can get it exclusively on AMAZON and read for FREE if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. And really, why wouldn’t you be?
How can the chance of a lifetime go so horribly wrong?
Mining Engineer Cole Hudson signed up for NASA astronaut training, but after washing out short of getting his gold wings, he retreats to Alaska where he stakes out a gold claim. When billionaire entrepreneur Duncan Janson offers him an opportunity to join a mining team on an asteroid, Cole jumps at the chance.
But nothing is as it seems. Former NASA reject and rival classmate, Tessa Hernandez, is also a member of the team, and from the beginning of the mission test flight, things go wrong. They soon discover they’re not the only ones on the asteroid. As they try to escape, they are pulled through a wormhole and back to the early 1800s New Mexico desert where aliens and Apaches may be the least of their problems.
If money were no deterrent to you, would you sign up to visit the moon?
