Is Mom getting tired of scented soap? Is she bored by costume jewelry? Two years from now, you might decide to get her the same old gifts?except THIS time, they will have made a trip into space and back!
A company in California says it can send an object of your choice into space and back for as little as $99, starting as early as 2008. The item you send has to fit into a soda can-sized container and weigh no more than about 12 ounces (in other words, about the size and weight of a nice necklace).
In New Scientist, Kelly Young quotes Michael Mealling of Masten Space Systems as saying, "We'll launch anything, as long as it's legal."
