IN February, SpaceX announced that it would take four paying passengers up into space to orbit Earth between the end of 2021 and 2022. It now has a deal with space travel firm Space Adventures, which has already sent other space tourists to the International Space Station (ISS) through the Russian (俄羅斯的) space agency.

This trip will travel two to three times further away from Earth than the ISS, which is about 400km above our planet. SpaceX has already unveiled details of the spaceship. The ship’s simple design will only have a few hanging seats and a touchscreen. Passengers will also have to wear a spacesuit designed by SpaceX to protect them from the harsh conditions in space.
