Japanese tech tycoon next space tourist

Hong Kong resident and Japanese entrepreneur Daisuke Enomoto will become the world's fourth space tourist in October, Space Adventures announced today. Space Adventures has already taken Dennis Tito, Mark Shuttleworth and Greg Olsen on galactic joy rides.

Enomoto was formerly the chief strategic officer of Livedoor, a publicly traded Japanese IT company. Currently, he is an independent investor.

Space Adventure crafts tours and activities for well-heeled adventurers with an interest in space. The company doesn't launch its own rockets. Instead, its customers hitch a ride on commercial launches. The training is somewhat intense and takes months.

The company also offers flights on MiG fighter jets, cosmonaut training and spaceflight qualification programs.
