Space Tourism

NPR's Larry Abramson reports on Dennis Tito, the world's first space tourist. Tito returns to earth this weekend after a week's stay at the international space station. NASA was opposed to Tito's trip, which he arranged with the Russian space agency. But NASA still claims the day will come when they too will be allowing tourists into space.
