A lunar tourism project proposed by Russia's Federal Space Agency will be launched by 2010
A lunar tourism project proposed by Russia's Federal Space Agency and its leading spacecraft manufacturer, Energia, will be launched by 2010, the agency announced in a Web site posting Thursday. It said the project, to be carried out in association with the U.S. company Space Adventures, would offer around-the-moon trips on board a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Two tourists at a time will be able to go on such a trip, accompanied by a professional astronaut. Space Adventures will have the exclusive right to market the project and search for potential tourists and investors, the agency said. "We expect the project to be implemented within five years' time, with an appreciable positive marketing effect, and to show the capabilities of Russian-made space equipment and, importantly, Russia's consistent efforts to make space exploration accessible to non-professional astronauts," the agency posting said
