Greg Olsen (no relation, unfortunately) is back in Russia training
to don his space suit and blast off into space. The millionaire inventor-entrepreneur from New Jersey, should the
mission proceed, will head to the international space station. His “mission” (do we call space tourists’ trips
“missions” or something else?), was suspended
earlier due to an unspecified health condition that was discovered when he was taking some routine tests.
Olsen would ride on the Soyuz, Russian-built craft that are
sent to the space station every six months. The next Soyuz flight is scheduled for September- or October, and Olsen
could theoretically complete his training in time to make that trip. Oh, you must be wondering what a trip like this
would cost. About $20 million.
