Mars Ain’t The Kind Of Place To Raise Your Kids

Neiman Marcus unveiled its 2006 Christmas catalog of exotic holiday gifts Tuesday. The most exotic (and expensive) is a six-person charter to space.
The chartered trip to space, which sends six passengers 63 miles above the Earth via Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo, costs just over $1.7 million. But once those passengers return to terra firma, they get to indulge in an all-inclusive four-night stay on Virgin chairman Richard Branson’s private retreat in the British Virgin Islands. So it’s worth it. Right?
