Sarah Brightman to travel to space station


www.bbc.co.uk said:

British singer Sarah Brightman is to travel as a space tourist to the International Space Station.

The classical recording artist, once married to Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, will be part of a three-person crew flying to the ISS.

After completing a tour in 2013, Ms Brightman will embark on six months of preparation at the Star City cosmonaut training centre in Moscow.

She will be the seventh space tourist to visit the ISS.

Once there, she says she intends to become the first professional musician to sing from space.

Kinda shows that if you have the money, yet no real reason to go, then you will take precedence. The people who should be going are those truly inspired by the big questions, the people teaching us about Astrophysics, kids with a real yearningto understand the universe, those who dream and work very hard without any sort of recognition.

Send a coupla kids up to play conkers, so they will understand immediately many different aspects of Physical Laws and theories.

She wants to be the first person to sing from Space? - what a crappy, narcissistic, self promoting, reason to go...IMO

If she didnt have the money she wouldnt be going. There isnt a line of people waiting for thier special trip to space that she is cutting in front of. So if she wants to spend 20-30 million dollars to go more power to her.

Not true, these flights certainly do not take precedence.
Space Adventures, which sells these flights, is only allowed to do so when there is an empty seat on a Soyuz. As well as Roscosmos, NASA must also approve the flight. Some of the money paid by those that have flown to the ISS goes to the Russian space programme and so these rich people are helping fund space exploration.

can we leave her there?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Ehh, you sound jealous. How do you know wether or not she is inspired by the big questions. Plus if someone is going to be the first to sing in space might as well be someone with amazing talent. Also, I highly doubt she needs to promote herself. She's relatively unknown to most yet is popular enough to make the kind of money that you need to spend $35M on a trip to space.

People who work in life using their talents to become rich and famous are to be frowned upon Keithisco? Why? The only answer to that question is simple and obvious. Jealousy.
