“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

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.

According to the 2022 Winter Olympics organizing committee, 11 of the 13 v

es built for 2008. Repurposing projects, such as transforming the Water Cube (which hosted swimming in 2008) into a
curling arena by filling the pool with steel structures and making ice on the surface, are well underway.

led elderly population, including psychological needs, so the services will aim precisely at those most in need,” she said.
Xi Huan, vice-president of Beijing Hospital, said major medical institutions need to m
ake more efforts to improve services for the elderly, including the promotion of disease prevention edu
cation and increased follow-up visits for elderly patients who have been discharged from the hospital.
“Big hospitals should provide more help for elderly patients, and more follow-up nursing services after they leave the ho
spital, so they can get timely help if problems occur at home or at community health centers,” he said.
