Charles Simonyi to Become First Civilian to Travel to Space Twice

Charles Simonyi is set to go to the International Space Station next spring. That would be his second trip to space making him the first civilian to make a return trip to space. These trips are not cheap costing 20+ million dollars, but Charles Simonyi is able to afford it having made his millions working at Microsoft.


"Space Adventures, the only company that provides human space missions to the world marketplace, announced today that Charles Simonyi, Ph.D., intends to train with the Soyuz TMA-14 crew in preparation for a spring mission to the International Space Station (ISS)."
