Richard Garriot is known for creating some of the biggest RPG franchises in history, Ultima and Lineage. That's already pretty cool, but this dude owns Sputnik!

Well, one of the backups that didn't burn up in the atmosphere, but still... that's pretty baller.

Garriot also bought a $30 million ticket to space to visit the International Space Station next October.

There you have it, kids. Definitive proof that games can make you a Russian satellite full of cash. Go, Lord British!
