Nasa said on Friday (June 7) it will open up the International Space Station (ISS) to business ventures including space tourism - with stays priced at US$35,000 (S$48,000) a night - as it seeks to financially disengage from the orbiting research lab.

Russian Federation has already let private citizens onto the station, so it won't be the very first time a non-professional astronaut heads to space, WaPo reported. She described it as a "new model of business" that will help NASA reach its goal of returning Americans to the moon. In other words, in the future, NASA wants to be the buyer of low-Earth orbit services, not the seller.

'This is all building off our upcoming Commercial Crew vehicles transporting astronauts, which will be used by both government and private citizen astronauts, ' DeWitt said.

Nasa will also allow film crews to shoot from the ISS as part of its commercialisation.
