Roscosmos is partnering with a US firm to send two space tourists to the International Space Station (ISS) next year, the Russian space agency has announced.

The names of the two individuals are promised to be disclosed sometime in the first few months of 2021.

The launch will be carried out in partnership with US-based Space Adventures and is scheduled to take place late next year. Roscosmos signed a contract with the US company in February 2019, agreeing to send two tourists into space by 2022.
