Trip to the Outer Space!


Reports suggested that Dennis Tito apparently paid around $20 Million for his unique space trip. He was the first space tourist carried by Russian Federal Space Agency and toured space for over seven days in the Russian Soyuz TM 32 capsule.

The reason for this post was not to augment the knowledge of space tourism or promote it. Richard Branson may have his own Virgin Galactic up and running as the first private consortium to take tourists to space. But that does matter little to me given the affordability ;).

Our very own KSRTC, took me to a tour of a satellite. Other promoters, note given the cost, I will choose our own transport system to travel to space than any other operator! I am not acting funny here, if you are to believe KSRTC bus tickets, then I have traveled to outer space for a mere 88 INR, around a One and Half GBP or Two Dollars for a trip from Mysore to Satellite! Proof: Here you go see the image below:

Ticket to Outer Space

Cool! So Mr. Tito, wanna try out the only profit making transport corporation in our country?

    Mr PJ King. Its satellite bus stand. Anyone in bengaluru and mysore knows that. And by the way, going by your theory of KSRTC taking u to a satellite for Rs 88, does it mean the same as going to space?

    As per your definition satellite=space. What a joke !!! 😛

      @Vikas: Mate, I know that its the satellite bus stand. It was anyway a PJ. With the BBMP elections around the corner, our politicians may even try to prove that this satellite is the satellite in space :)! So you don’t know…. I might have visited the space now!
