One Expensive Ticket!


Talk about an expensive ticket!

NASA tells Congress it will have to spend about a-half billion dollars to pay Russia to fly astronauts to the International Space Station.

That comes to nearly 82 million bucks a seat, up from 71 mil.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden sent a letter to Congress saying the agency would need to pay $490 million to Russia for six seats on Soyuz rockets for U.S. astronauts through 2017.

I wonder if they serve complimentary peanuts and beverages on this flight?
