Russia to freeze space tourism after 2009

Russia won't take tourists to the International Space Station after this year because of plans to double the size of the station's crew from three to six astronauts, the chief of Russia's space agency said in an interview Wednesday. There will be no room for paying tourists, Russia's space chief Anatoly Perminov told Rossiiskaya Gazeta.
      Ria Novosti also reported that Russia does not plan to cancel any of its planned launches to the space station this year. The Federal Space Agency is expected to launch additional crewed Soyuz capsules and unmanned Progress cargo ships to ferry astronauts and supplies to the orbiting laboratory.
