Daily Linkage: Travel's Final Frontier

Today's Pick
Here's one travel-related item not expected to make Wendy Perrin's Deal of the Day anytime soon: space travel. Today on Gizmodo.com, Will Whitehorn, president of Virgin Galactic, predicted that would-be astronauts shouldn't expect to pay less than $100,000 for the chance to use zero gravity airsickness bags once Virgin Galactic's space program is up and running. Earlier this week, Wired.com's Autopia blog ran footage of the April 20 test flight of a prototype of WhiteKnightTwo, the plane expected to carry SpaceShipTwo, Virgin Galactic's six passenger suborbital craft, to launch altitude. 

Elsewhere
The Discovery Channel live blogs its Everest climb and shares some beautiful shots.

Travel service journalism par excellence: Jaunted.com's "Five In-Flight Movies to Avoid Now."

Sure, the whole Trafalgar Square gathering was for an advertisement, but impressive nonetheless.
