CAPE CRU­SADERS ALIEN ALERT TRUE MOON

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

Come on, Mr Fake News. The moon land­ings were a set-up – but aliens def­i­nitely crashed in New Mex­ico, and are be­ing stud­ied at Area 51 in Ne­vada. OK, you got me. You can drive the Ex­trater­res­trial High­way on the 12-night “Ne­vada and The Loneli­est Road” (£1,796, with flights) trip touted by bon-voy­age.co.uk. Amer­ica’s love of a rocket go­ing up is also vis­i­ble at Kennedy Space Cen­ter Vis­i­tor Com­plex (kennedys­pace­cen­ter.com; $57/£44), at Cape Canaveral in Flor­ida – where tourists can meet men and women who have gone into or­bit, and gawp at the re­tired Space Shut­tle At­lantis. It fea­tures in the ex­haus­tive 21-night “Flor­ida Dis­cov­ery” road trip of­fered by amer­i­caasy­oulikeit.com, from £1,259pp in­clud­ing flights. Come on, Mr Main­stream Me­dia. Every­body knows the moon land­ings were faked. OK, Mr Con­spir­acy The­o­rist. Where? Oh, I don’t know. Some sound stage. Shall we say Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios in LA? They have that su­perb back-lot tour where you can see the me­chan­i­cal Jaws. From $109 (£85) – uni­ver­sal­stu­dioshol­ly­wood.com. Now – we could spend the next fort­night ar­gu­ing as to whether the aurora bo­re­alis counts as “space”. Pros: this is a ce­les­tial phe­nom­e­non caused by charged so­lar par­ti­cles hit­ting the mag­netic field above the North Pole. Cons: oh, sorry, we’re out of room in this para­graph. Eas­ier just to book a three-night “Tromso North­ern Lights City Break” via dis­cover-the-world.com, from £575pp with flights, and gaze at the sky in awe.
