"According to Fox News, a round-trip ticket to the orbiting International space station in 2011 and 2012 will cost NASA as much as $51 million per person, up almost 100% from the current $26 million. The price will jump to $56 million in 2013 and 2014. That’s $112 to $168 million taxpayer dollars every 6 months or so to finance the adventures of 2 or 3 new space cadets. Meanwhile, the federal government bureaucracy will continue funding an already defunct rocket to nowhere program until March, 2011, costing taxpayers another half billion unnecessary dollars."
