Russia has a new plan up its alley to generate tourist interest. It plans to launch space travel missions from 2019 onwards. Leading this race is the company Energia which back in 1961 had put Yuri Gagarin into space, becoming the first to do so. The trip will cost a whopping US$ 100 million per head though costs will come down for the first volunteer for this as yet, unverified mission. For a start, it will be a ten-day trip for six people, replete with luxuries such as internet connection and toilets. Such as Richard Branson and Elon Musk belonging to rich western countries have been planning such space travel for a while, but Russia implemented this business innovation back in 2009 when Guy Laliberte was sent to the International Space Station.
