Space Final Fantasy XIV GilAdventures,

the company that brokered eight private flights to the International Space Station aboard

Russian Soyuz spacecraft, is working with Boeing to launch wealthy space tourists and other

non-NASA fliers aboard a capsule under development by the U.S. aerospace giant, officials

announced Wednesday.

The Boeing CST-100 capsule, being designed to launch atop Lockheed Martin Atlas 5 rockets,

Boeing's Delta 4, or the SpaceX Falcon 9, is intended to carry NASA and European Space

Agency astronauts to and from the International Space Station under a NASA initiative to

encourage development of private-sector spacecraft.

Under abuy ffxiv gil separate

memorandum of understanding between Boeing and Space Adventures, excess capacity--seats not

needed by NASA or its space station partners--will be marketed to wealthy individuals,

private companies, non-NASA federal agencies, and other governments that might need access

to space.

Pricing has not yet been determined, but officials said they expect the cost of a seat to

be "competitive" with the going rate for a Soyuz launch. NASA pays the Russian space agency

more than $50 million a seat for a Soyuz flight, while the most recent Space Adventures

client is believed to have paid some $40 million.

Bigelow Aerospace, which plans to launch a small commercial space station in the 2014 time

frame, also will utilize Boeing CST-100 capsules for transportation. Bigelow officials

recently estimated the cost of a round trip at about $25 million per seat.

"The marketplace...has not been constrained by the number of people who wanted to go; it's

been constrained by access to orbit," Eric Anderson, chairman of Space Adventures, told

reporters FFXIV GilWednesday.

"When we are now able to look at this with a partner who has...the ability to roll

spacecraft off an assembly line and operationalize the business of human spaceflight, I

look forward to really understanding what the market is like and probing the depths so

we...eventually get to the point where the price starts to come down."
