AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE

NEW YORK — Space Adventures Ltd., the world’s only operating space travel agency, will publish a travel guide to the stars next month to give aspiring and armchair astronauts a glimpse of stellar tourism.

“The Space Tourist’s Handbook,” authored by Space Adventures President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Anderson, promises to be the “ultimate guide for those who have ever dreamed of traveling to the final frontier,” the company said.

The book will cover everything from travel planning tips to life-and-death survival skills, with sections on the best destinations, vehicles, types of missions, training and preparation involved.

Publication comes on the heels of the safe return to Earth last week of millionaire businessman Greg Olsen, who paid Space Adventures $20 million to spend eight days aboard the International Space Station. He was the third private citizen to become a space traveler.

Mr. Anderson said his handbook would reach a wider readership than just a few billionaires.
