Baikonur: Second Space Tourist

The Russian Commission of Space Travel authorised the journey of South African Mark Shuttleworth to the International Space Station on a Russian spacecraft.

Shuttleworth will accompany the Russian Commander Yuri Gidzenko and the Italian Roberto Vittori on the mission to the International Space Station (ISS) on 25th April, aboard a Soyuz TM-34 rocket.

They will come back ten days later aboard a Soyuz TM-33, the main mission being to substitute this module of the ISS. The TM-34 will remain available for an emergency exit from the space station.

Shuttleworth is the second space tourist after Dennis Tito, who paid 20 million USD last year for a similar trip with a Russian space crew. Shuttleworth, a successful businessman involved in IT, has decided not to reveal how much he paid for his trip.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
