Malaysia Ties Space Flight to Arms Deal

Malaysia signed an agreement with Russia to send an astronaut to space next year, part of the deal that involves the purchase of SU-30 jets. The deal, which if pushed through will give Malaysia its first space flight in September 2007, is reportedly worth $ 1 billion.

That's an awfully large amount to spent for a space tourist, eh?
