If you’re planning a trip into space and you don’t already work for a space agency like NASA, the best route will be with a Space Travel Agency.

There are already three: Space Adventures, Space Expedition Curacao and Virgin Galactic, but with so many entrepreneurs trying to get affordable, reusable spaceships off the ground, this page is sure to get bigger.

Space Adventures flies from Baikonur in Kazakhstan, arguably the home of manned spaceflight. Virgin Galactic will fly from Mojave, New Mexico and later from Dubai. If you fancy somewhere more tropical to start your holiday space, SXC will fly out of Curacao in the Dutch Antilles, in the Caribbean.
