Canadians Flying High

Two Canadian tourism companies that specialize in providing clients exotic vacations are now offering trips into space aboard XCOR's Lynx spacecraft.

Lynx is still in the test flight phase, but XCOR plans commercial high altitude flights later this year, and full-blown commercial suborbital flights to the edge of space-- as many as four flights per day-- starting in 2014.  XCOR is competing with Virgin Galactic to be the first to fly paying passengers on such an adventure.

The Canadian companies just started offering the flights February 1, but so far business has been good.
