Beginning in 2013, Space Adventures will once again sell seats aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft headed straight for the International Space Station. Previously sending seven people to the ISS, Space Adventures will now send 3 people a year.

According to the MIT Technology Review, the space tourism company restruck a deal with the Russian Space Federation, who ended their earlier arrangement in 2009 in preparation of becoming the last link to the ISS. Trips will apparently cost “tens of millions of dollars” and will last as long as 10 days. But just remember: what happens in orbit, stays in orbit. [Technology Review]
