NASA to pay Russia for Soyuz rocket trips, Reuters

"The United States, which beat Moscow in a race to the moon during the Cold War, will pay Russia $21.8 million per astronaut for a lift aboard a Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station, the U.S. space agency NASA said on Thursday. The fare is slightly more than the world's first "space tourists" forked out for a ride into space with the Russian craft."
