Russia is building a special spaceship for tourists


The Executive Director of Roscosmos Sergey Krikalev announced the completion of the Soyuz spacecraft for the flight of tourists to the International Space Station (ISS).

It is reported by RIA Novosti.

“In a specialized mission with us, the ship is being finalized in order to make it easier to control one person, and some modes will not be duplicated as they should be duplicated. The improvements relate to the interface, so that it would be more convenient for one person, ”he said.

According to him, at the moment, the state corporation has no contracts with potential space tourists who will fly on this ship. At the same time, it is noted that an experienced astronaut will become the commander of this “Union”.

Earlier, NASA chief financial officer Jeff Devit said that a flight and a monthly stay on the ISS for a private tourist can cost more than $ 59 million.
