Richard Garriott Plans Trip into Space -


The Korea Times is reporting that Richard Garriott may be headed into orbit to spend a week onboard the International Space Station in the fall of 2008.  NCsoft is reported to be considering sponsoring the trip as part of a Tabula Rasa promotion.

NCsoft, South Korea's largest game company by revenue, said its American game director Richard Garriott may fly to the Internatioanl Space Station in the fall of 2008, only a few months after Ko San takes the exactly same flight to become the nation's first astronaut.

The company said on Tuesday that the final decision will be made in a month. If settled, Garriott will fly on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft for a one-week stay at the ISS.

The trip to the space station is commissioned by Space Adventures, a U.S. space trip brokerage firm. The company recently said it has reserved two seats on the Soyuz craft for the fall of 2008 and the spring of 2009, for one American and one Asian, respectively.
