Bad News for Multimillionaires

Roscosmos, the Russian space Agency, has let it be known it will stop launching space tourists after this spring.  The International Space Station will soon have enough equipment and power to support a crew of six instead of three, and all the seats on Russian Soyuz spacecraft are taken for the time being. More HERE from RAI Novosti, the Russian news service.  If your Russian is up to speed (and your browser supports Cyrillic), you can find the original announcement on the Roscosmos website HERE. Anousheh Ansari, who flew in 2006, admitted to Wired Magazine last year that the hardest part of buying a trip into space was coming back: "You realize that you may never experience this again." Bummer.
