The complex consists of a reusable launch vehicle and a reusable spacecraft designed to organize excursions to the altitude of Gagarin's orbit along an open trajectory. Space tourists will be offered a 15-minute flight in a group of six people, during which each tourist will be able to be in a state of zero gravity for 5-6 minutes, freely moving inside the cabin and having the opportunity to look at the Earth through a personal window. The ticket price will be $ 200-250 thousand, flight altitude - 180-220 km.

A Russian company that planned to send tourists to space through the country’s first private cosmodrome has scrapped the project and will permanently close, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported Tuesday.

Kosmokurs’ operations will cease due to “insurmountable difficulties” in coordinating with local authorities on the cosmodrome project as well as the company’s “inability to obtain needed regulatory documents from the Defense Ministry” for the design of a suborbital tourist rocket, its CEO Pavel Pushkin told RIA Novosti.
