The trip on the Russian Soyuz MS-20 is estimated to cost more than US$88 million for Maezawa and his assistant Yozo Hirano, according to estimates in local media.

See, that's how you billionaire. Even in space, you take your personal assistant.

Your royal ass is clean, your royal billionairess.

Yeah, well, just wait until he goes to make a cup of coffee his first "morning" in space.  That's when he'll realize he can't put any milk in his coffee.  And the other astronauts, who actually belong there, will get to explain to him that in space no one can.  "Here, use cream.", they'll say.

The obvious solution is to take your coffee black.

They won't let him go otherwise. Even if he throws more money at them (I think)

Am I the only one who hopes one of these flights ends in a fireball killing all on board so everyone goes back to recognizing you don't do this for joy rides?  That it's farking dangerous and dilettants don't belong there?

I'd feel sorry for those who were there to do actual work... but the dead weight cargo taking up resources I'd cheer that they were dead.  Because as far as I can tell, most Billionaires on this plant fall into that category.

Dennis Tito paid $20m in 2001, inflation adjusted that's about $30m. This guy paid $88m for two? Someone's being ripped off.

Everybody biatches about the Service Economy but isn't it much better to have a life staying in each other's hotels and dining in each other's restaurants? Complain all you want about the Billionaire Economy but I can't wait, we will all be billionaires and enjoy a carefree life buying each other's companies and riding on each other's spacecraft.

Didn't they put a cat in the ISS, or was that another craft?

Oh OK, just in an weightless aircraft. A cat in the ISS might be annoying.

Hmmm... now I'm wondering how effective cat litter would be in micro gravity. Even if it could be contained in a clump, I would imagine the urine stream would more bounce off rather than be absorbed.

That's the thought of a healthy, well adjusted person.

If they don't explode, then they aren't dangerous and you can do them for joyrides.

You are basically hoping that it gets more dangerous than it is, so that you can say "I told you so" about danger that you are currently wrong about.

I think cat litter is absorbant, and due to its porose nature will stick to water.

Or the cat will have to wear a diaper.

NASA was paying the Russians $68 million per astronaut, and this guy gets two for $88 million. I guess SpaceX is driving down the price.
