Bill Gates in space?

Is Bill Gates considering space travel? A Russian cosmonaut told journalists that he heard from former Microsoft exec Charles Simonyi that Bill Gates wants to blast off. Try and follow that chain of attribution.

“Charles said that Bill Gates is also preparing to visit space,” said cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikin, according to an AFP story. “So the next time someone will be with Bill Gates. For me this is the biggest surprise of our flight.”

But the U.S. company that organizes space travel said it hasn’t heard from Gates about a possible flight. If anyone from this region were to fly to space next, I think it would be Jeff Bezos and not Gates.

Simonyi paid at least $20 million to be a space tourist, and docked at the International Space Station with Yurchikin and another Russian cosmonaut on Tuesday.
