American billionaire Charles Simonyi, a computer software executive who paid more than $20 million to fly to the International Space Station aboard a Russian-built Soyuz capsule in spring 2007, will train for a second Soyuz trip to the space station in spring 2009.I'm so glad that Mr. Simonyi found something more extravagant than another yacht or another mansion to splurge on. Meanwhile, back here on Earth, people are dealing with real problems.
Enjoy your flight, Mr. Simonyi! We'll be right here when you get back. You can read more about this narcissistic tool on his own little website, charlesinspace.com.
