Space Daily has posted a story about a Chinese man who is in line to become that nation's first commercial space passenger.
http://www.space-travel.com/news/tourism-05i.html

The story notes that he has signed up for a suborbital flight, and has put down a deposit "for the privilege next year," though it doesn't say exactly what would happen next year. Surely they don't mean he's planning to fly next year?
