The NASA ‘travel agency’

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration will allow private citizens to fly to the International Space Station, reversing a long-standing prohibition against tourists at the station, the Washington Post reported recently.

NASA made the announcement at a news conference on June 7, and said costs and arrangements for flying crews to the station would be left to Boeing Co and SpaceX, the two companies NASA has hired for such trips, the Washington Post said.

NASA would charge people for food, storage and communication once at the station, which would amount to about US$35,000 a night, the Post reported.
