Moon access for everyone?

— 2:00 PM on September 11, 2002

If you believed they put a man on the moon, then would you believe that a private company now has clearance to land there?

TransOrbital of California has become the first private company in the history of spaceflight to gain approval from the US authorities to explore, photograph and land on the moon.
TransOrbital's mission will also drop a time capsule on the moon's surface, and you can even get your own items included for $2,500/gram. Unfortunately, the $20 million it would have cost to send Lance Bass into space will only get 8kg of the boy band star to the moon, but maybe if we all pitch in...
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
