SpaceX will send four privately-paying space tourists on a Crew Dragon trip around the Earth.— Michael Sheetz (@thesheetztweetz) February 18, 2020
The mission is set to launch between late-2021 to mid-2022,"
broker Space Adventures said. https://t.co/nq3KP2IJiD
The launch will take place from american soil (presumably from the Kennedy space center in Cape Canaveral) with a spacex Falcon 9 rocket, the carrier is reusable, the same that will push the next astronauts and that has made the fortune of the company of Elon Musk. Aboard the Crew Dragon seats seven, and then in addition to the four space tourists, will probably place a support crew consisting of one or more of the astronauts trained. The tour operator star Space Adventures is a travel agency that is sui generis. Founded in 1998, was the first to bring into orbit a private, the (very rich) american businessman, Dennis Tito, known to history as the first space tourist. In 2001, after having paid out $ 20 million, has had the opportunity to spend a week on the Iss. After him, Space Adventures has brought into orbit six other customers. The next project will be a new record, given that this will be the first tourist trip beyond the earth's atmosphere “supplied with american technology”.
An ambitious goal, but more affordable compared to the other “grand tour” announced in the past few years by the same Musk: the first two space tourists around the Moon. One of the tickets has been detached from billionaire japanese However Maezawa, who should bring with him a group of artists. Although the fate of this trip is yet to be written, given the delays in the development of the new rocket required to reach up to the expression. Recent news also gave the same Maezawa on the verge of bankruptcy and unable to pay the cost of the trip for him and his friends (we are approaching very to 100 million dollars), be forced to sell some pieces of his art collection.
