I've always been fascinated by space and often wonder what it would be like to be an astronaut. Commercial space flight might allow me to find out sooner rather than later...

The UK government has released a list of possible sites for a UK spaceport. Once ministers have decided which site is best, space planes may be able to launch fare-paying passengers to the edge of Earth's atmosphere so they can experience weightlessness.

The idea of booking a quick trip to space for my holidays might not be as far away as I thought!
