Former Microsoft software developer Charles Simonyi is set to become a space tourist for a visit to the International Space Station (ISS).
Simonyi, a 58-year-old American and co-founder of Intentional Software Corp., will ride a Russian-built Soyuz spacecraft to the ISS for a one-week science mission aboard orbital laboratory, Space Adventures said, adding that a contract for the spaceflight is in hand.
With a March 2007 spaceflight in hand, American space tourist-in-training Charles Simonyi celebrated with a launch of his own website Thursday as he debuted a personal website where he’ll document his trek to the International Space Station (ISS).
Simonyi is now set to launch towards the ISS on March 9, 2007 aboard a Russian-built Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft that will also ferry two Expedition 15 cosmonauts to the orbital laboratory. He plans to lay down his training and flight experiences on the Internet at his website: www.charlesinspace.com.
