One wealthy individual is going to become the ‘first private citizen’ to step outside the International Space Station on a space walk as part of a new tourism deal. 

American space tourism company Space Adventures has signed an agreement with Russia‘s Energia space corporation to send someone ‘into open space’ from the Russian part of the ISS in 2023.

The exact price of the trip hasn’t been confirmed but the first businessman to visit the ISS in 2001, Dennis Tito, paid Roscosmos $20 million for an eight-day trip. 

A spacewalk is more of a challenge than visiting the station alone as it requires extensive training and can be physically exhausting, according to astronauts.
