Nasa is to allow tourists to visit the International Space Station from 2020, priced at $35,000 (£27,500) per night.

The US space agency said it would open the orbiting station to tourism and other business ventures.

There will be up to two short private astronaut missions per year, said Robyn Gatens, the deputy director of the ISS.

Nasa said that private astronauts would be permitted to travel to the ISS for up to 30 days, travelling on US spacecraft.

I think that is the price of the launch. The $35,000 per night is is in addition to that.

Generally the heavier the payload the more expensive the launch costs. To launch me I think you're going to need a bigger rocket.

It would be an awesome vacation though!

I want Eric Dubay to crowd source the money for the trip and live stream his reaction once he leaves the Earth's atmosphere. Priceless

Eric Dubay, never heard of him before now (that I remember), but that's funny. Somebody needs to start a GoFund me page just for that.
