According to NASA's Commercial Crew Website, the company highlights its mission to develop and operate new generation space crafts that can carry crews to the International Space Station and also low-Earth orbit. "NASA is opening the International Space Station to commercial opportunities", said the agency's CFO Jeff DeWitt during a news conference at Nasdaq headquarters in NY.
It is reported that the voyage will cost people around $35,000 per person per night.
The Nasa schedule for tourist flights to the "ISS" from 2020 seems extremely ambitious, especially since neither SpaceX nor Boeing have yet tested their new astronaut capsules manned.
"The first Gateway is about the moon, but I think the second Gateway, being a deep-space transport, again using commercial and global partners, enables us to get to Mars", said NASA top boss Jim Bridenstine, speaking past year.
It's expected that a trip will likely cost around $50 million (£39 million) per astronaut, according to early estimates - but could easily rise well above that figure. The decision is that from now, regular citizens, not only certified astronauts, can get on board of the International Space Station.
Nasa has previously talked to private companies about taking over the entire operation of the costly space station, but none have wanted to.
This effort is meant to broaden the scope of commercial activity on the space station beyond the ISS National Lab mandate, which is limited to research and development.
The company will deliver four tourists at a specific date to the International Space Station. The ISS functions under a set of worldwide agreements, namely the US need the consent of partners for the commercial utilization of the station. So, in 2001, American businessman Dennis Tito became the first space tourist in the world, paying Russian Federation about $ 20 million for a round-trip airfare. That would put the total for the trip to over $1 million. The main focus of this mission is to privatise the space station and to build up resources for the Moon Mission of 2024.
