Building second Office up there


The man who gave us Microsoft Office, billionaire Charles Simonyi, will train for a second Soyuz trip to the International Space Station in spring 2009.

Simonyi paid more than $20 million to fly to the ISS aboard a Russian-built Soyuz capsule in spring 2007 and apparently liked it so much he wants to go back.

The trip is being arranged by a private company called Space Adventures. The company's sixth customer, Richard Garriott, son of NASA astronaut Owen Garriott, is scheduled to launch to the space station October 12th.

He is paying about $30 million under an agreement between Russia's Federal Space Agency and Space Adventures.
