Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic has opened the first commercial spacecraft runway at its Spaceport America facility near Las Cruces, New Mexico.  The spaceport will offer three-hour tours of space that include five minutes of weightlessness, for about $200,000.  (They should probably turn away any passengers with luggage.)

Cheaper than 20-25 million for a tour on the ISS...

I think the going price for the ISS is about 10 million, and that's a much longer stay. The hourly rate is about the same, I think.
