It is planned to redesign the scientific-energy module with a mass of 20 tons. This 15.5-meter-long module is to provide 92 cubic meters of pressurized space.

This will be done within the framework of public-private partnership.

The tourist will be able to rent a two-cubic-meter sleeping cabin – a porthole of 9 inches in diameter, as well as personal hygiene products, simulators and access to Wi-Fi.

Also, the tourists will have an opportunity to do into the space accompanied by a professional cosmonaut.

A ticket to the moon Russian ISS will cost $40 million per week. To extend the trip for two or three weeks will be possible for an additional fee – $20 million.

The cost of the ISS tourist block is estimated to cost about $279-446 million. The developer of the module is Russia’s prime space station contractor, RKK Energia, which is currently seeking funds to create the unit.

The creation of the unit takes five years, and its launch will not occur until 2021. Roscosmos believes that the project will pay for itself after seven years of work.

Taking into account that the launching of Russian missiles was a complete disaster, Nexter isn’t sure the new tourist unit will be a successful project.
