MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. Russian plans to increase incomes from the operation of the International Space Stations (ISS) as much as possible, General Designer of manned space systems Yevgeny Mikrin said on Friday.
In his words, ways of boosting incomes are "offering services of transportation to the ISS for astronauts from partner countries, selling seats and cargo kilograms aboard spacecraft, organizing commercial experiments, and space tourism services."
According to Mikrin, operating costs will be reduced by means of the ISS automation in order to boost its cost-effectiveness.
