Caption: Dennis Tito (b.1940), space tourist, (middle) with the other members of the Soyuz TM-32 spaceflight launch crew, waving prior to take- off. Tito, a multi-millionaire American businessman, paid $20 million (£14m) to join this Russian flight to the International Space Station (ISS), becoming the first space tourist to pay for his own ticket. The flight launched on April 21 2001. He spent almost 8 days in orbit and docked with the ISS. He was sixty when he took part in the flight. Prior to being a businessman, Tito worked as a scientist for NASA at the Jet Propulsion Unit (JPL).
