Laliberte, a Canadian billionaire, is believed to have paid around $35 million to spend nine days aboard the station as a tourist. He took off Sept. 30 with cosmonaut Maxim Suraev and NASA flight engineer Jeffrey Williams, who remained behind aboard the station as part of the six-member Expedition 21 crew

Well, assuming that Laliberte is worth exactly 1 billion, 35 million represents about 3.5% of his net worth. For most normal people who have, say, a $150,000 mortgage, 2 cars, a retirement fund and $15,000 in cash savings (say a net worth of $300,000), that would be like them paying $10,500. So the answer is YES!!
