NASA plans to open the International Space Station for tourists in 2020


The US space agency NASA will allow tourists to visit the International Space Station starting in 2020, at $ 35,000 per night.

NASA said it would open the earthbound station for tourism and other business activities.

Deputy Director of the Agency, Robin Gittens, said the agency will organize two short space trips with special funding in the year.

“NASA will open its doors to commercial and marketing activities, an area we have not penetrated before,” said Jeff Dewett, the station’s chief financial officer, in New York.

NASA said it would allow private astronauts to travel to the ISS for 30 days aboard US spacecraft.
