EADS Astrium rocketed into space tourism with their new Astrium Space Jet, set to launch in 2008. The reveal occured at a VIP event just before the Paris Le Vourget Airshow.

The Astrium Space Jet carries four passengers 100km into space for 3 minutes of zero G hang time. The price: €150,000 to €200,000.

Implications - The Astrium Space Jet perfectly embodies the technologically advanced accomplishments of modern society today. These space vacations will definitely appeal to high-end consumers looking for that truly unique and one-of-a-kind experience. Only those with the largest disposable incomes will be able to fly into space and I can't wait to hear about it. Maybe if I'm lucky enough, I'll be able to tag along! This video acts as a commercial for their new spaceship and space tourism program.
