Design a promotional leaflet to sell a dream holiday in space, maybe from the space shuttle or from Virgin Galactic. Students need to include the following:
* The nature of the journey there and back - the differences compared to traditional methods of travel.
* Special features of the trip, eg views, comfort, bathroom facilities.
* Special preparations needed.
* Pre-journey packing checklist.
* Security checks.
* Information and illustrations that would help sell this glimpse of the Universe, a unique space experience, as the holiday of our dreams.
