It stands to reason that where there are expensive vacations, eventually there is going to be the economy class turning up and in this case, its campers and the location is the outer atmosphere! This is how a team in Scotland become the first campers in space, although the tent was full size the campers were on the small side.

 

 

These are the details on the first camping trip in space;

 

In the Scottish Highlands four intrepid Vangonauts attempted their first mission and managed to pitch a tent at 104,000ft (over three and a half times the height of Mt Everest).

Mission control was in the Scottish Highlands near Oban. The tent was launched in light winds, and initially headed South East, before catching the jet stream and heading North East.
