Eric Anderson, the President of Space Adventures

On the 12th of April, 1961, Yury Gagarin became the first man ever to go into orbit. Children across the world dreamt about space travel. Some 40 years later, this dream has become a reality, but at a price – 20 million US dollars to be exact! This is what it costs for a trip into space but what do you really get for your money? Eric Anderson, the President of Space Adventures, a firm which has sent five space tourists into orbit, is our guest today on Spotlight.
