SUMMARY: NASA has given its blessing for millionaire space tourist Mark Shuttleworth to visit the International Space Station. The previous paying visitor, Dennis Tito, was permitted into the station, but required constant supervision. Shuttleworth will lift off Thursday on board a Russian Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and dock with the station Saturday.

How much is this guy paying? The last one was 25 million....
If fares continue to be that high, very few people other than astronauts will ever see space!
