Russian Rocket Ride: $63 Million Per US Astronaut


us-astronautsThe Russians are hiking the price of rocket rides again for U.S. astronauts – to nearly $63 million. The price goes up in 2014 for an astronaut to fly to and from the International Space Station on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. NASA announced the news Monday.The previous contract charged just under $56 million apiece

The contract extension with the Russian Space Agency totals $753 million. That covers trips for a dozen astronauts from 2014 through 2016.

NASA officials say inflation is the reason for the latest price increase.

NASA chief Charles Bolden says it’s critical for U.S. companies to take over this transportation job. Space shuttles used to do that job. They’re being retired this summer.

  1. leave the planet earth & mark yourself for death C”V by Hashem.

    BOTH Rocket ships that blew up & killed everyone on board ( Shuttle Columbia with Israeli & Shuttle of 1986 ) had jews on it. What can we learn from this? Hashem says i put you here on Earth to do your job don’t go to another planet & try to see other worlds.
    AKA: other people can go to space & live on other planets BUT if jews go there, they are guaranteed to be killed chas V’shalom.
    sometimes when people get too smart & think they can run the world from millions of miles away etc… Hashem has to send a reminder wake-up call to the world that Hashem runs the world from A TO Z

  2. I see.

    So what you are saying, wake-up call, is that HaShem is only concerned about the welfare of Jews, and that the rest of His creatures are expendible.

    If you are indeed Jewish then you should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself.
