SpaceX: On Thursday, SpaceX announced a partnership to send three tourists to the International Space Station (ISS), the first solo tour in more than a decade.
In the second half of 2021, Elon Musk has entered into an agreement with the commander in the crew dragon capsules, X-Cusum Space, to transport tourists.
According to Exum CEO Michael Sufredini, the flight “represents the moment of water in March, which seeks universal and permanent access to space.” He did not disclose any costs.
The launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 missile is about $ 60 million, and with the added cost of building a new capsule, project costs can exceed $ 100 million.
That means every ticket costs millions of dollars.
Eight astronauts with the ISS went on a Russian Soyuz rocket with Space Adventures.
The first was Dennis Tito, who in 2001 paid up to 20 million to spend eight hours at the ICC. Guy Lalibert, founder of Cirque du Soleil, last visited in 2009.
Last month, SpaceX announced a partnership with Space Adventure to send four tourists to Orlando’s orbit rather than their previous occupants.
The mission is also expected in early 2021, but probably in 2022.
Other companies involved in space travel include Richard Branson’s Virgin Galaxy and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin.
Both are developing ships to send tourists to the boundaries of space (up to 80 kilometers, or 100 kilometers – up to 62 miles) depending on how they designate it.
Tickets for Virginia start at $ 250,000, when they were sold in the mid-2000s.
SpaceX’s fur is more ambitious and works with the same used Falcon 9 rocket that puts satellites into space and sends astronauts to ISS.
At the same time, Boeing is also developing a crew capsule called Starliner to deliver ISS to US astronauts.
Like SpaceX, Boeing plans to send tourists into space, but there are major obstacles to the program’s development, which resulted in an objective test flight in December.
