To the moon and back

If you have £150m to spare, you could consider keeping it aside for a trip around the moon with Excalibur Almaz, a company based in the Isle of Man. In 2015 they will be ready to take you on a private tour of space in their second-hand Soviet spacecraft. (You may have to travel further than the Isle of Man for the launch and you'll have to undergo six months' training in California first.) 
The Russian astronaut Valery Tokarev,who is a consultant to Excalibur, says, "Everyone has to remember that space is aggressive, it is not our mother planet. If you make a mistake in space, it will kill you."
