Yes, you can take a journey to the Moon for only $10,000, a real bargain! unfortunately you have to be dead to go.
LOS ANGELES - The moon could become a final resting place for some of mankind thanks to a commercial service that hopes to send human ashes to the lunar surface on robotic landers, the company said on Thursday.

Celestis, Inc., a company that pioneered the sending of cremated remains into suborbital space on rockets, said it would start a service to the surface of the moon that could begin as early as next year.

The cost starts at $10,000 for a small quantity of ashes from one person....
Its a bit hard to enjoy the view if you're dead, I think I'll wait till I can get there alive.
