Space Taxi Will Be Reality By 2015

Imagine going to an airport, boarding a spacecraft with six other people, being rocketed out of the Earth’s atmosphere, and then docking at ISS for a quick tour. It sounds crazy doesn’t it?

Well… if Boeing has their way, this will be a reality by 2015. The aerospace giant is teaming with Space Adventures, to make this happen. The program includes plans for a new spacecraft, the CST-100. Boeing will build the spacecraft, and Space Adventures will take care of the ticketing and flight planning. There have been no ticket prices released yet, but experts guess it will cost millions of dollars. Yikes!

The video below illustrates the concept. Freakin’ sweet!
