Space warriors? Ugh.... I suppose this crew concept got attention for Inspiration 4, presumably he'll think it'll help him flog some scam nonsense.

I am kind of wondering if he was kindly asked to excuse himself from the first flight as not very good PR and was rewarded with six seats on a subsequent one.

$28 million? Does he realize he's only doing sub orbital, 3 minutes of zero G?

This will be the first time a Chinese citizen will fly to space on a non-Chinese spacecraft and rocket correct?
AE/ME

I believe that is correct. JPL payload specialist Taylor Wang was born in China, but he became a US citizen years before he flew on STS 51-B.
