AP: Richard Garriott — a computer game wizard and astronaut’s son — paid US $30 million to fly to the space station.
With his 12-day adventure winding down this week, Garriott said he felt fulfilled even before he rocketed away on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft on Oct. 12, thanks to all the training he got with astronauts and other space professionals.
He told reporters at a news conference that the rocket ride into space was “very exciting” and the view was “spectacular.”
