RSA Predicts Death of Space Travel After 2009

Sending space tourists to the International Space Station using Russian spaceships may become problematic after 2009, according to the head of the Russian Space Agency (RSA) of the RF Anatoly Perminov. Closing such expensive and popular sector as space travel the RSA head explains with an agreement signed by the member countries (including Russia) of the international space programme.
      According to the international agreement, since 2009, if Japan and Europe launch scientific multipurpose modules, crews of the International Space Station must consist of 6 people. In this case there will be no free places left for tourists of the Russian rockets. Along with that Anatoly Perminov notes that within the next two years something may become clear regarding the pilot-controlled spaceship that Europe and Russia work on together.
      Nowadays, as Anatoly Perminov marks, Russia actively works in the sphere of space travel. When RSA sees it possible to take tourists to space, they always do it. However, the number of people willing to fly to space is so high that RSA cannot satisfy them all.
