This international day is celebrated worldwide on April 28 since American businessman Dennis Tito was launched into space that day in 2001 aboard the Russian Soyuz TM-32 spacecraft from The Baikonur Cosmodrome.
⠀ The trip took place 40years to the month after Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space and made Tito the first space tourist, who paid for it $20 million.
⠀ Nowadays such unusual trips are arranged by The Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities in partnership with Space Adventures, Inc., an American space tourism company. Since then 7 people have been into space as tourists using the International Space Station (ISS). One of them – Charles Simoni – even did it twice.
⠀ And what about you? Would like to have such a trip?
