Space Venture! The term is around for a while inviting our curiosity for it being functional. The revolution of space tourism is all set to flourish with enthusiasts engaged in developing sub-orbital space flights costing few $$$$. Now, Steve Bennett (43) based in Manchester is also another prospective candidate of this space-driven race. Called Nova 2, the three-seater capsule can take tourists around 60 miles high in space. Holding the flag of the Space Technology Laboratory at Salford University, Steve is hoping to get the 58-foot rocket tested by year-end. Against £107,000 Virgin Galactic, this one is priced at £98,000 per person. At personal front, Steve wishes to be one of the Britain’s first ‘space tourism’ millionaires and is planning to set up a space port site in New Mexico along with his company Starchaser Industries.
