Skolkovo Innovation Center Plans to Send Tourists to Space

The head of Skolkovo Fund Victor Vekselberg announced that Russian innovation center would send first tourists to space in three years.

      He said it would be great if the space eventually became a new habitat for all people on the Earth. According to Vekselberg, the fund makes the best of it.

      The businessman also said that Skolkovo expects double investment inflows in 2012. The last year was rather good, as the fund managed to raise more than $ 150 million for financing new projects.

      It has been noted that Moscow authorities will take an active part in the development of infrastructure and landscaping of the Skolkovo territory by supplying water, heat, electricity and by construction of new roads and railway communications.
