Spaceship Ride Through the Aurora Borealis
Spaceport Sweden has announced a partnership with Virgin Galactic to fly boosted Earth-to-space rides into the aurora borealis (polar lights) beginning in 2012, as expected for the past three years. The Ice Hotel Travel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden is among the five approved ticketing agents. Space tourists launching from Sweden will be able to chose whether to go through the winter season's aurora borealis or the midnight sun of Swedish summer [video of Ice Hotel].
