Train as an astronaut
Could you handle the rigours of a rocket launch, the G-force of spaceflight and the bewildering controls of a shuttle? You can find out by taking an astronaut training course at Nasa's flagship base, the Kennedy Space Centre. Of course, real astronauts train for many years, but these taster courses can last either half a day or two days.
You'll receive intensive tuition and tackle mission simulations, as well as meeting a veteran Nasa astronaut. The two-day programme also lets you build and launch your own rocket and dabble with a fully outfitted mission control.
But if money is no object, go one better. Book yourself in for a full-on zero gravity flight - the closest you can get to space travel without stowing away on a space shuttle.
