Russia Will Be Supplying Station Crews

Russian space officials confirmed this week that they will be delivering new crews to the International Space Station for at least the next year. Russia is planning to launch two missions to the station next year, with guaranteed spots for a Russian cosmonaut and American astronaut on each flight. A Soyuz in April will also carry an astronaut from the European Space Agency, but later flights could be available for tourist flights. Russia is considering five potential tourist candidates.
