Space tourism industry targets Asia's wealthy

Companies search for customers in Hong Kong willing to pay hefty price for six-minute visit to space.

    It is an extraordinary holiday that starts at a price of $160,000 and the experience will last only six minutes.

    But if you are an adventurer with deep pockets then space tourism could be for you.  

    Private companies are already looking for customers and Asia's wealthy are in their sights.
