This story actually broke a month ago, but in case you missed it, it's worth noting.
Anousheh Ansari, a wealthy telecom entrepreneur and one of the key sponsors of the X-Prize, is undergoing training right now to be the next space tourist.

Plus, she's a great role model for impressionable young girls everywhere....
