MOSCOW, 29 (UPI) -- U.S. video game developer Richard Garriott is paying $25 million to become the sixth space tourist to spend a few days on the International Space Station.

Garriott, whose father is former NASA astronaut Owen K. Garriott, is to travel to the space station aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft next year, said U.S.-based Space Adventures.

Garriott, who developed the Ultima computer game, is expected to spend about a week on the space station.

The previous five space tourists each paid about $20 million each for the privilege but Russia recently announced it was raising the price per ride to $25 million, RIA Novosti reported.
