Proposal to allow a space tourist to ISS go on a space walk.

This is from the same Russian company that offered space launches to ISS (although the last one was in 2009). In order to qualify for a space walk, one must undergo a long series of ground training sessions. There was no price tag on this (presumably because if you have to ask...).

no, it's because even before covid they were drowning in debt

that's the unifying factor of this wave of bankruptcies -- massive, pre-existing, unsustainable debt

in the case of cirque du soleil, around a billion dollars
