WASHINGTON – The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is to allow tourists to visit the International Space Station from 2020, priced at $35,000 (£27,500) per night.
The United States space agency said it will open the orbiting station to tourism and other business ventures.
NASA said private astronauts will be permitted to travel to the ISS for up to 30 days, travelling on the US spacecraft.
The space agency recently announced that it planned to return to the moon by 2024, taking the first woman there and the first person in decades. (BBC)
