Mini Station 1 illustration (MirCorp) MirCorp said Wednesday that it has reached an agreement with Russian officials to fly winners of a forthcoming television game show into space in 2003. The agreement, made with the Russian space agency Rosaviakosmos and Energia, would involve two Soyuz flights in 2003, each carrying a winner from a game show under development. The Soyuz missions would be 8-10 days in duration and would either be taxi flights to ISS or "autonomous" missions without docking to the station. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Few details were released about the game show, other than it is under development by Image World Media, an American company that primarily produces programming for Asian markets.
