    $30M trip...fortunately he seems to have enjoyed it, because I don't think the Russians would give him a refund. :D

    What I found most interesting is that he is the only American to ever go to space after a parent, as his father Owen Garriott was a NASA astronaut on the first Skylab. The Russian cosmonaut that was on the station was the only person in the world to have that status before Garriott went into space...but Garriott went as a tourist, so I guess the Russian cosmonaut keeps his unique job status.

    Linky.

    Yay the first American to pay his way into the record books. Wait, no he's not.
