NASA is opening the International Space Station to tourists


SOLD DESPITE THE FACT IT WAS A MATH LAB. FIRST THOUGH, EVER DREAM OF BECOMING AN ASTRONAUT? WELL, NOW THERE’S A CHANCE THAT IT COULD HAPPEN. NASA HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THEY WILL ALLOW PRIVATE CITIZENS TO FLY INTO THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. JONATHAN HUNT REPORTING LIVE. ARE YOU GOING?>>I’M CERTAINLY NOT, SHEP. IN FACT, ONLY TWO PEOPLE PER YEAR WILL BE ALLOWED TO BECOME CITIZEN ASTRONAUTS.>>THEY’LL HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF MONEY AND A LOT OF TIME. LET’S LOOK AT THE COST FIRST. ROUND TRIP TICKET, $50 MILLION. ACCOMMODATIONS PER NIGHT ON THE SPACE STATION, $35,000. THE EXPERIENCE NO DOUBT PRICELESS. IT’S NOT LIKE ANY OVERWEIGHT MIDDLE AGE MAN SUCH AS I CAN HOP ABOARD A ROCKET TO THE I.S.S. ANYONE THAT WANTS TO DO IT, HAS TO GO THROUGH THE SAME TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION PROCESS THAT REGULAR ASTRONAUTS DO AND YOU’LL BE FLYING ABOARD THE SPACEX CREW DRAGON OR THE BOEING SPACE CRAFT, NEITHER OF WHICH HAS TAKEN AN ASTRONAUT INTO SPACE. NASA IS CONFIDENT THEY’LL START THESE TRIPS NEXT YEAR. I WILL NOT BE VOLUNTEERING. I TEND TO LIKE MY 35,000 A NIGHT HOTEL ROOM TO COME WITH A KING BED AND ROOM SERVICE.>>Shepard: YOU CAN GET A PRIVATE POOL FOR THAT AS WELL. IS NASA SAYING ANYTHING? THEY’RE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL DOG HOUSE RIGHT NOW. ARE THEY SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS?>>YES. THEY’RE SAYING THIS IS QUITE SIMPLE ABOUT MONEY. THEY’LL GENERATE CASH FROM THESE TRIPS AND THE SECOND PART OF WHAT THEY ANNOUNCED TODAY, WHICH IS OPENING UP THE U.S. SPACE STATION TO COMMERCIAL INTERESTS. ALLOWING BUSINESSES TO USE IT FOR WHATEVER PURPOSES THEY CAN THINK OF AND THAT NASA APPROVES. OFFICIALS SAY THEY’RE EXCITED TO SEE WHAT IDEAS BUSINESSES COME UP WITH AND MONDAY TIEING THE SPACE STATION WILL HELP NASA ACHIEVE THEIR NEAR AND LONG-TERM GOALS.>>THE COMMERCIALIZATION WILL ALLOW NASA TO CREATE RESOURCES TO LAND THE NEXT MAN OR WOMAN ON THE MOON BY 2024.>>THAT AMBITIOUS MOON PROJECT IS SUPPOSED TO LAY THE GROUND WORK FOR A SUSTAINABLE PRESENCE ON THE MOON AND THAT WILL HELP THEM PREPARE FOR THE BIG ONE, GETTING ASTRONAUTS TO MARS. PRESIDENT TRUMP GOT CONFUSED ABOUT THE MOON AND MARS ON HIS

  1. Total waste of money. 50 million would fund generations of a family. NASA is a white-collar welfare program

  2. Second, give me how many oxygen tanks you need for 10 years operation, how much is the billing and why isn't it mentioned in the ISS transporting of supplies by the Russians or Elon Musk.

  3. When the media and Socialist universities collude with NASA, we know our grandchildren don't stand a chance in this very corrupt and deceptive world full of Satanic people worshiping money and themselves.

  4. The other Satanic arse cheek is busy in playing little wars to defenseless countries with rare minerals and oil resources.

  5. How long can debt-piling economy sustain the greed of your kleptocratic elite and welfare but homeless children? Who are the winners and losers here?

  6. Can Bernie Sanders and the Sherpas queen tell the truth about NASA's lies? No, there will be NEW generation of liars just for the sake of earning it so easy, by being a cult social media celebrity.

  7. Trump is dumbing/trolling the dumb NASA and liberal people, Planet Mars and Moon is one. Why he would win easily, he can blackmail all of you.

  8. bernie sanders is going to start calling space station visits a right and will demand they are provided for free to illegal immigrants.

  9. I'm going through this training right know and i can tell you it's no picnic… a lot of watching "The Right Stuff" and eating Marsmellows… Also Shepherd Smith sucks (literally)

  10. This comments section is really high lighting the lack of education in this country and our dip of a President is taking the lead.

  11. 1970s live on moon base
    1980s ride space shuttle
    1990s you can go to Skylab
    2000 you can ride Russian rocket into space
    2010 ride virgin new space plane into space

    Now again NASA take you to space International Space Station

    Ain't no one going to space 😩
    50yr of this lie you would think some one would catch on but noooooo

  12. Republican'ts believe in a flat Earth that is 6000 years old and dinosaurs were planted in the ground to test your faith. Leave the 'space talk' to the party of science and stick with your faith garbage. lol

  13. I heard that Trump wants to turn it into a Trump resort and charge international criminals to come visit.

  14. You all have fun. I would rather pilot a drone to ancher some solar sails to pre-guide meteor redirects. Got a drill on the anchor to check for useful ice content?

  15. NASA is a joke ,couldn't get back to moon ,lost several shuttles with all funding they had , leave it to the bezos , and private organizations please

  16. Darn it I wish I had that much money so I can go to space oh many we can see the first teenager in to space

  17. I mean it's so not fair for everyone I really want to go to space whose idea is 50 million dollars luts talk about the money and make it less

  18. We have been paying Russia (you know, our "mortal enemy") to take our astronauts to the space station, for 11 years. That story rings hollow.

  19. How do you step out of the space station which is travelling at over 17,000mph and don’t move away from it?
