US company plans to offer space flight tours including a breathtaking trip around the moon.
For $150 million per person, per trip, one US company has partnered with the Russian Federal Space Agency to take people up into space. Two individuals at a time will be launched with one Russian mission commander to spend 10 days aboard the International Space Station before going around the moon and returning home.
Fifty years after the first American astronaut rocketed into space, one commercial spaceflight company is hoping to push the envelope even further, with tourist trips around the moon. And now they plan to use a bigger spaceship.
