Investor Announces Plans To Send A Couple Into Space

Millionaire space tourist Dennis Tito announced plans to send two astronauts on a 501-day flight that zooms past Mars and swings back to Earth.

Such a trip – tentatively set for 2018 – would set plenty of precedents on the final frontier, but the most intriguing precedent might have to do with the astronauts that are to be sent: one man and one woman, preferably a married couple beyond childbearing years.
