Word this week that Russian cosmonauts have a sweet financial deal for spending some time on the space station.
A six month stint on ISS is enough to earn them a nice paycheck of 150 thousand dollars worth of rubles.

Not exactly a Wall Street bonus – but more than the average NASA astronaut makes in a year – whether he or she is in space or on the ground. I assume while in space – drinks and dinner are on them.
