Space Daily has posted a story about a Chinese man who is in line to become that nation's first commercial space passenger.

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?

"America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow." - Commander Eugene Cernan, Apollo 17 Mission, 11 December 1972
