WORLD'S FIRST TOURIST IN SPACE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first civilian in space?

On April 28 2001 American millionaire Dennis Tito became the first tourist in space after blasting of from Russian aboard a Russian rocket heading for the International Space Station.

Although NASA was not to thrilled with having T\Dennis Tito aboard  the International Space Station, the Russians could not resist the $20 million Tito paid and he was on his way to history.

We were going to title this one 'First Civilian in Space', but from our research found this not to be the case. The first civilian(s) in space were Konstantin Feoktistov, also the first scientist, and Boris Yegerov also the first physician, aboard Voshkod 1 which reached orbit on October 12 1964.
