Good Afternoon.
Europe has negotiated seats on both Taxi Soyuz planned for 2005. 

This mission is the one Reiter has been training for and will probably EX
15. He will take a seat of a Russian cosmonaut as it is theirs to sell. It
is dependent on Shuttle return and 3 person expedition crews.

<<The European Space Agency (ESA) is negotiating with the Russian Space
Agency 
on a six-month mission [...]
The flight would follow the planned April launch of ESA astronaut Roberto 
Vittori,>>

And the mission would be financed by the agency itself.

I believe the mission depends on *when* space shuttle returns to flight.

Bye
Luca
