In its announcement, NASA is opening the International Space Station (ISS) to private astronauts and citizens, allowing them to commercially fly out to the station. The proposal suggested commercial alternatives -such as private-owned orbital outposts - to generate revenue.

Previously, Russia's space agency has already brought a number of private travelers to the station.

Last week, NASA announced that for the first time in history, it's privatizing space travel. The company says it will charge $52 million per seat for missions of one or possibly two months.

According to the space agency, it is willing to turn-over the responsibility of providing the necessary resources needed for sending humans to space to a private company that is capable of doing so. According to reports, the agency now spends between $3 billion to $4 billion a year.

Russian Federation operates half of the International Space Station.

Lastly, the income generated from tourism would help to cover additional costs NASA incurs, allowing it to invest more money in other projects. SpaceX and NASA continue to investigate what went wrong.

Bigelow said BSO would "digest" all the information NASA released on Friday to ensure the missions will be "responsibly performed".

Since the company is purchasing whole trips aboard the SpaceX capsule, its flight schedule would be independent from that of NASA's, making the trip, longer.
