For this transport, a fantastic ceremony, The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade is organized in Cairo.

To protect mummies from external conditions, they put each mummy in a special nitrogen-filled box. Also, they carried on specially decorated vehicles.

New Spaceship For Space Tourism By Virgin Galactic
With the new steps taken, space tourism seems to be no longer a dream for a few of us. The company Virgin Atlantic, known for its business in the field of space tourism, designed a new space plain, to take tourists to space on suborbital flights. SpaceShip III is more advanced than the previous I and II models. The power of the spaceplane is a winged craft and it has a mirror-like exterior.
Cruise Ship Ban in Venice’s Historical Site
After long efforts, this Wednesday, Italian ministers declared a ban for large cruise ships and container ships to enter the city’s Giudecca canal. Plus, the cruise ships must dock at the city’s industrial port. The Italian tourism minister stated that there was a request from UNESCO.
This decision is actually a result of the war with cruise ships in the past. The efforts of these ships to pass through very sensitive places and their size were disturbing. Even a coalition happened with the injuries of 4 people. So starting in 2013 with a weight ban on cruise ships, for fighting with over-tourism this was the last move.
