The launch of the Soyuz TMA-14 this morning included another tourinaut, a repeat tourinaut mind you: Charles Simonyi.
Other tourinauts were: Dennis Tito, Mark Shuttleworth, Gregory Olsen and Anousheh Ansari – some paying as much as $20 million dollars for the trip.
Google co-founder Sergey Brin has already plopped down $5 million dollars to be a tourinaut on a future flight, but investors in Google stock have been trying hard to keep him down on Earth! :-)
Thanks Bob for the suggestion!Tweet
