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.

Check out the company which has to date sent three tourists into space at a mere US $20 million - Space Adventures www.spaceadventures.comflight Virgin Galactic www.virgingalactic.comen Security concerns are covered in a BBC news report
