There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    Even if we will be able to take a trip to the Moon, even to the Mars, they are basically desert. So their popularity as a destination will be no more than Sahara's or Gobi's.
    However, I think zero (or less) gravity will be exciting experience. I expect we will invent zero gravity sports and enjoy them!

    @Saira and @Yellowtail orbital space tourism already exists, but I'm sure it won't be too long before it will be possible to visit the Moon or Mars if you are rich enough. I think the adventure of the journey as well as seeing the Moon up close would make it interesting. I can imagine mostly very wealthy people who want the kudos of being a space tourist would want to do this though. I doubt many people will be able to go as I would expect it would be beyond most people's pockets.

    Space tourist (2002) paid an estimated 20 million US dollars for an 11 day flight.

    How about this?! Worms in space! Researchers have sent a group of intrepid (I'm not sure they had much choice in the matter) flatworms to the International Space station for five weeks to see how they’d get on. Weird results now are offering new insights into human health.
