Outer Space = The Next RE Frontier

$5 million down— that's how large a deposit Google co-founder and future man on the Moon Sergey Brin paid out to secure his spot on VA-based Space Adventures' two-man (plus commander) flight to the International Space Station. The VA-based outfit generally shells between $20-40 million to the Russian government per tourist, though Russia pimps seats on its spacecraft as form of financial aid to the country's space program. Says Brin: "I am a big believer in the exploration and commercial development of the space frontier, and am looking forward to the possibility of going into space."
