Flying High

British business man Alan Watts has traded his frequent-flier miles for a journey of a lifetime-one that will take him 75 miles above Earth. Watts has accumulated two million flyer miles and according to Virgin Atlantic Airways spokeswoman Katie Francis, he plans on redeeming these miles with a flight on the world’s first commercial tourism flight to space. This will make him one of the first 1000 people to travel under the Virgin Galactic Space Tourism Program in 2009. This isn’t a leisurely flight however; passengers must have three days of training before taking off in the spacecraft, which travels at over 3,000 miles per hour. If a little space travel sounds interesting but you lack the frequent flier miles, you too can go to outer space for a measly $200,000 a ticket.
