“If you look at the pricing and you add it up, back of a napkin, it would be roughly $35,000 a
night, per astronaut,” NASA’s Chief Financial Officer Jeff DeWit told a news conference in New York.
“But it won’t come with any Hilton or Marriott points,” DeWit deadpanned.
NASA’s Russian counterpart Roscosmos has already allowed a number of private citizens at the station.
NASA officials also said opening the door to private enterprise gives the
agency more room to focus on the Trump administration’s goal of returning to the m
oon by 2024, which could be fueled in part by revenue generated from new commercial services and paying astronauts.
Arrangements for the trip were being left to Boeing and SpaceX, NASA said.

China will release a list of generic drugs by the end of June this year to g
uide enterprises to develop, register and produce urgently needed generic drugs fo
r clinical use, public health and safety, according to the National Health Commission.
Those on the list will be the first batch of generic drugs of which production will be encouraged, the Commission said, ad

With healthcare reform going deeper and a population increasingly ageing, China encoura

The safety of mountaineers in China’s recently concluded Qomola
ngma climbing season, which saw 241 climbers scale the peak from the Chinese side, was ensured throu
gh good management practices, the government of the Tibet autonomous region said on Friday.
Twelve Chinese mountaineers, 21 Chinese guides, 94 foreign mountaineers and 108 Sherpa guides
made it to the summit from April 10 to May 30, according to the Tibet Mountaineering Association.
Two alpinists, however, have become the victims on the north face of the
mountain in Tibet’s Dingri county, resulting from the extreme physical demands.
“Mountaineering is a high-risk sport, and safety is the priority,” said Pema Trinley, the association’s deputy director.

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.
Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.
He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg
ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.
“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th
e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.
This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co
nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.
Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.

China will offer customized data services for disaster prevention throug
h its Fengyun meteorological satellites for more countries along the Belt and Road, said a
senior official of the China Meteorological Administration’s National Satellite Meteorological Center.
The services will be provided based on the results of a survey of 81 countries. By the end
of April, 22 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Libya and Sudan, had responded to the survey.
All of the respondents said they wanted to install the application software platforms
of the Fengyun satellites for weather forecasting, as well as climate and environment monitoring.
They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainf
