After docking at the International Space Station on Tuesday, the world’s fifth space tourist, Charles Simonyi, has nothing but praise for his visit so far: “I think the most impressive thing was the approach to the station and seeing it from outside. Inside it’s a very cosy place and I can see why Cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin thinks it is his home. It is a cosy place. It’s full of stuff as you see. It’s full of knick-knacks, just like a home is. But from the outside, it is amazing how it appears from the blackness of the sky.”
And it seems, Microsoft founder Bill Gates could be the next to test his space legs. Simonyi reportedly told a cosmonaut Gates was getting ready for the challenge.
