Looking for a new travel idea to add to your bucket list?

Sherman’s Travel and three major McClatchy newspapers (the Sacramento Bee, the Macon Telegraph, and the Modesto Bee) are excited about a new space tourism trip offered by MIR Corporation: Inside the Russian Space Program 2012.

In September 2012, guests touring with MIR will have the opportunity to watch the manned launch of the Soyuz spacecraft on its way to relieve the crew of the International Space Station, enjoying unparalleled access to VIP viewing areas and briefing sessions. After returning to Moscow, travelers will take in the classic sights before witnessing the live Soyuz-International Space Station docking at Mission Control Center, an event that very few get to experience in such an intimate way. Other unique experiences include exploring the MIR Space Station simulator, visiting the Soyuz-TMA integrated simulator and the ISS mock-up, and taking part in a number of optional cosmonaunt training experiences such as riding a centrifuge, taking a zero gravity flight, and Orlan space suit training.

If you’ve ever dreamed of space travel, here is your chance.
