Astronaut tells independent.ie that space holidays will be as common as airline travel

One of the world's most famous astronauts believes that we will soon be taking summer holidays to space. In an exclusive interview with independent.ie, Ron Garan, who has spent six months living in the International Space Station, reveals his belief that space travel outside of planet earth will be available to everyone "in the near future". Since retiring from NASA Garan has been on a mission to improve life on earth and has been working with a number of leadership programmes including One Young World which comes to Dublin next October. Here he also tells us why wants to come to Ireland for its hospitality and innovation. Credit: Kevin Doyle / Clare Cullen
