Have Your Honeymoon in Space

My fiance and I occasionally speculate about where we’d like to have our honeymoon. Someplace urban? Someplace close to nature? Maybe both?

One option we hadn’t considered, is space.

That’s the plan for Loretta and George Whitesides, the couple who intend to have their honeymoon in zero gravity. You can learn all about the couple’s mission du love at their new Web site, spacelove.org.

Here’s an excerpt: “We hope that with our flight, we can help bring love and peace to a place that is very important to us – space,” said Loretta (…) The sub-orbital spaceflight will launch the couple over 100 km high, past the boundary of space. The flight will include several minutes of weightlessness, a view of the blackness of space and the curvature of the Earth.”

Sounds romantic, indeed. Check out the site for updates on the couple’s preparation, and advice on how you can have your very own outer space marriage!
