Megayacht Owner Becomes "Space Nerd"

Talk about one heckuva trip: Charles Simonyi, one of our favorite megayacht owners, is hurtling his way into space as you read this. Yes, space—as in "outer." He's the latest tourist (or, as he joked, the first nerd in space), joining a mission heading to the international space station. Being a computer whiz, naturally he's created a Web site where you can learn what tasks he'll perform as well as read his blog and post questions he'll answer. One question we'd like to have settled: Can he see his yacht from space?
