A Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft with 15th International Space Station (ISS) expedition will be launched April 7, 2007 from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, the Russian Space Agency said Tuesday. The 15th ISS expedition comprises two Russian astronauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov and U.S. millionaire Charles Simonyi, who is set to fly to the ISS as a space tourist.

Simonyi, an American of Hungarian origin and one of the founders of Microsoft Corporation, said earlier last week he planned to conduct experiments in orbit on behalf of the European Space Agency, and also to carry out his own scientific program, particularly, a medical experiment to study radiation effects on humans.
