Inside the Russian Space Program Featured in FasterTimes.com
MIR’s Inside the Russian Space Program was featured in an article entitled “Ashton Kucher in Space?” from Faster Times.com in March 2012. Kucher, apparently, has paid his $200,000 for a seat on one Virgin Galactic’s future space flights. Inside the Russian Space Program is presented as a much more reasonably-priced near-space experience, especially if the optional cosmonaut training is included.
Cosmonaut training can consist of a zero-gravity flight, a ride on a 4-G centrifuge or a chance to don a heavy Orlan space suit and simulate a space walk (read more).
