NASA and ISS are working with private United States companies like SpaceX and Boeing to build a spacecraft named Starliner, that is capable of carrying the tourists to the global space station and these companies will charge up to $58 million for the round ticket, and perks are not included in the ticket price.
The goal is stimulating sufficient commercial demand for space station facilities in low Earth orbit (LEO) that companies will build their own space stations and NASA can purchase services from them instead of operating ISS. According to the statement conveyed by Robyn Gatens who is the deputy director of ISS said that the U.S. agency will allow two visits per year. But that concept will soon become obsolete; at least some rich people that can cough out tens of millions of dollars for a special vacation will be able to buy a ticket for Space tourism.
Although the ISS already hosts nonprofit researchers from 50 companies, this new program will be the first to offer for-profit companies the chance to go to space. Each night aboard the ISS will cost travelers a cool $35,000, while still having to meet NASA's strict medical standards, training and certifications before visiting.
Nasa said that private astronauts would be permitted to travel to the ISS for up to 30 days, travelling on USA spacecraft.
The Nasa schedule for tourist flights to the "ISS" from 2020 seems extremely ambitious, especially since neither SpaceX nor Boeing have yet tested their new astronaut capsules manned.
The missions will be for stays of up to 30 days.
Foxconn can make all iPhones outside of China (if necessary)

Canada plans to ban single-use plastics as early as 2021
Single-use items represent about 70 per cent of the plastic waste littering the marine environment. About one-third of plastics used in Canada are for single-use or short-term products.
Launching private astronaut missions is part of a larger effort to expand commercial activity at the space station beyond the research and development now limited by the ISS National Lab mandate. In 2011, the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) was established to manage the US national lab aspects of the ISS.
That is the average rate the companies will bill Nasa for taking the space adventurers to the ISS.
The lucky few who can afford the costs associated with the trip won't be the first space tourists, though.
What do we think about International Space Station Touring?
They won't be the first private individuals visiting the ISS. Back in 2001 USA businessman Dennis Tito got a chance to visit International Space Station and he had to pay $20 million for the ride.
"We want to be there as a tenant, not as the landlord", NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said in April. And it ended up sending the Russians a bill for his stay on the ISS.
