Die US-Raumfahrtbehörde NASA will die Internationale Raumstation (ISS) für Touristen öffnen. Ab 2020 solle es eine „kommerzielle“ Nutzung der ISS für Weltraumtouristen geben, kündigte NASA-Finanzvorstand Jeff DeWitt an. Die privaten Reisen ins All können laut NASA bis zu 30 Tage dauern. Hin- und Rückflug sollen rund 58 Millionen Dollar kosten. Für das Leben an Bord der Raumstation müssen die Urlauber rund 35.000 Dollar täglich bezahlen. Reuters
