Tourist Spacewalk

Russia is planning to send paying tourists on the International Space Station out on spacewalks for the first time, an official from the country’s space industry said.

The cost of such a trip could be around $100 million (80 million euros), “possibly less for the first tourist”.

The tourists will be able to “go out on a spacewalk and make a film, (or) a video clip”.┬áThe NEM-2, the name of which is still to be confirmed, will accommodate four to six people. It will be fitted with “comfortable” cabins, two toilets and internet access. It should be launched in 2019.
