NASA's Plan to Open Up the International Space Station for Tourists

NASA has been talking about launching more private and commercial space missions to the International Space Station (ISS) for a while now and they have recently announced that they will open it for such expeditions. The only catch is it will cost you a ton of money.

The first mission will take place as early as 2020, the agency said. “If supported by the market, the agency can accommodate up to two short-duration private astronaut missions per year,” NASA said. 
“These missions will be privately funded, dedicated commercial spaceflights.” CNBC reported that each private trip will likely cost $50 million, and NASA will receive $35,000 per night.

It's great to plan for this but they'd better get the launch vehicles figured out first. No point is selling Air BnB spots on the ISS without a rocket to get there.
