Space Adventures' Orbital Spaceflight Candidate, Greg Olsen, Confirmed to the Soyuz TMA-7 Crew

"Space Adventures announced today that American technology entrepreneur Gregory Olsen, Ph.D. has been confirmed to the Soyuz TMA-7 crew which is currently planned for launch to the International Space Station (ISS) on October 1 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan."

Editor's note: With the grounding of the Shuttle fleet it will be interesting to see if this third seat will be used for a sightseer or someone who will actually work aboard the ISS.

"[University of Maryland physicist and former Russian space official Roald] Sagdeev says Griffin's view of Russia as a competitor is misguided, given that country's "miserable space budget". But he adds that cooperation with Europe is now a higher priority for the Russian space programme than cooperation with the United States."
