The Bigelow Aerospace has unveiled information on prices for everyone interested in using its planned private Alpha Space Station. Transportation costs to the station will be $26.25 or $36.75 million per seat for a 60-day visit depending on the transportation provider selected by the client. One can choose either a 60 days or a 10 days visit. SpaceX and Boeing are the selected transportation providers. SpaceX is selling seats on its seven-seat Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket for $26.25 million, or $183.75 million per vehicle. A seat on Boeing’s CST-100 spacecraft, launched by the Atlas V, will cost $36.75 million, or $257.25 million for all seven places. In addition to it naming rights for the entire station will cost $25 million per year.Visiting astronauts will be granted access to the Alpha Station’s shared research facilities. Among the available equipment there will be a centrifuge, glove-box, microscope, furnace, and freezer. Unlike the ISS, where astronauts spend much time supporting station operations and maintenance, astronauts aboard the Alpha Station will be able to focus solely on their own experiments and activities. Potential clients will get the opportunity to lease 110 cubic meter blocks of the space station (nearly the same volume as a module on the International Space Station) for 60 days at a cost of $25 million.
