Space Adventures, the only company that provides human space missions to the world marketplace, became world renowned in 2001 with the launch of client Dennis Tito, the world’s first privately-funded spaceflight participant. Since then, the company has launched five other individuals to space. Dr. Simonyi made history with his recent flight as the first private explorer to make a repeat visit to the space station.
