Moscow: Russian state space corporation Roscosmos is negotiating a spaceflight to the International Space Station (ISS) on board the Russian Soyuz spacecraft by representatives of Hungary, Thailand, Indonesia and Tunisia, a source in the rocket and space industry said on Wednesday.

“We are talking about the flight of representatives of states, professional astronauts, and not space tourists,” the source said.

The flights are possible after 2022. In addition, in 2023, the first astronaut of Turkey may fly to the ISS, he said.
