Space Tourist Decides He Likes It

Does the name Charles Somonyi sound familiar? If it does, then you know that he is one of a very few space tourists. Specifically, he visited the International Space Station in 2007. And he decided he likes it... to the tune of $30 million, give or take $5 million or so.

That's right, he's going back! Next spring, a scant two years after his first space flight, he is going to board a Soyuz capsule headed toward the International Space Station, and in doing so become the first repeat space tourist. It seems he believes the cost it well worth the trip, which is good news for those of us waiting for... less expensive flights.
