From 2001-2009 our clients made history by flying over 36 million miles in space on eight separate missions to the ISS. Since its maiden mission in 2010, no engineering achievement has consistently impressed the industry more than the Dragon/Falcon 9 reusable system.
Space tourism company Space Adventures has signed a contract with RSC Energia for a Soyuz flight to the International Space Station that will include an opportunity for one customer to perform a spacewalk.
Under the contract announced June 25, a Soyuz spacecraft will fly a “short duration” mission, which Space Adventures described in a statement as lasting 14 days, to the ISS with two spaceflight participants and one professional cosmonaut on board. The contract is similar to an agreement announced in February 2019 for a 2021 Soyuz flight to the station, also with two spaceflight participants and one professional cosmonaut on board.
The new contract, though, would include the opportunity for one of the spaceflight participants to walk in space. According to a Roscosmos statement, that person, along with a Russian cosmonaut, would perform a spacewalk from the station’s Russian segment.
