Four people from Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province, have signed up for a space travel on April 29.

They are expected to take off from the US on a micro space shuttle next year if everything goes smooth, Xinhua News Agency reported.

This is a program organized by a high-end travel agency in the southwest Sichuan Province. It cost each traveler 720,000 yuan (about $114,285) to experience six minutes’ ‘intimacy’ with the space. Over the distance of 103 km away from the earth, the four would be able to see one third of the planet during the trip.

Six have expressed interest in the trip while only four made the decision eventually.

All the four enrolled travelers were local business executives: Three were male in their 40s, among whom two worked in investment and one in real estate with qualifications as a pilot; while one was a woman in her 30s, whose motto for life is “Life needs to be wonderful, and women can do as well as men.”
