First Private Space Mission Most Likely Will Include Tom Cruise

Former astronaut, López-Alegría, will serve as mission commander on first private space mission. Joining him will be businessman and former Israeli fighter pilot Eytan Stibbe. Though it has not been officially announced, all evidence suggests the other two passengers on the mission will be actor Tom Cruise and  film director Doug Liman. The crew will ride to the International Space Station, stay for about a week (where Cruise and Liman plan to shoot a movie), and return to Earth.
