InterSpace Ad: "Travel the Solar System, see strange new worlds, meet strange new people, all for one low-cost ticket."

InterSpace Ad: “Travel the Solar System, see strange new worlds, meet strange new people, all for one low-cost ticket.”

A furious social media campaign forced space agencies to reverse their decision to cancel the InterSpace pass.

People with more money than they can sensibly spend without resorting to philanthropy can use the InterSpace pass to travel around the solar system at reduced rates.

Pass holders can jump from ship to ship at no extra cost and it allows two servants to accompany them for the price of one, albeit in stowage.

The InterSpace pass is currently supported by Richard Branson‘s Virgin Galactic, Jeff Bezos‘ Blue Orion and Elon Musk‘s SpaceX.

The group was going to cancel the pass due to zero take-up but the power of social media forced it to reconsider.

One campaigner said: “Don’t cancel, I’m saving.”

Another asked if they could get a pass with Nectar points.

One potential billionaire buyer said: “I wanna see if I come back in one piece from the first one before signing up for a round the solar system trip.”

Someone else said: “I’ve been on a World cruise, I want to go somewhere else.”

All agencies said they are committed to the InterSpace pass whether or not anyone ever buys one

NASA approached the group with a view to joining. However, as their only current mission is to Mars their itinerary was not felt to offer customer value.

US President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on rocket fuel if NASA was not allowed to join.

The group offered free InterSpace passes to any aliens in Area 51 that Donald Trump wanted to send home.

The negotiations continue.
