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.
