From MSNBC's pre-launch profile of third space tourist Greg Olsen, written by Alan Boyle:
A wide assortment of mementos will be making the round trip with Olsen: souvenir banners for the University of Virginia and other institutions; a set of keys from his dad; a Civil War medallion from the late historian Brian Pohanka, which will be returned to his widow; and wine labels that Olsen will put on Christmas gift bottles from the winery he owns in South Africa.

In addition, collectSPACE has learned that Olsen will carry a copy of the Space Tourist's Handbook: Where to Go, What to See, And How to Prepare for the Ride of Your Life, written by Eric C. Anderson, president and CEO of Space Adventures, Ltd., and Joshua Piven, co-author of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series.
