Dennis Tito on a Russian zero-g plane, courtesy Space Adventures NASA officials on Monday strongly denied a report published in a British newspaper Sunday that claimed that the agency had struck a secret deal with Russia to allow California millionaire Dennis Tito to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) in April. The Sunday Times of London article claimed that NASA would allow Tito to fly to the ISS on a Soyuz in late April and spend a week on the station if he passed a NASA physical and agreed to "work his passage" while on the station. A NASA spokesperson told that no decision on Tito's possible flight has been made. The topic is expected to come up during a meeting of NASA and Rosaviakosmos officials in Houston this week on various ISS issues.
