Singer Sarah Brightman will be the next tourist to take a trip to the International Space Station.

The classical singer will conclude her 2013 tour and then go in to training for six months at the Star City cosmonaut training centre in Moscow. Brightman will be the first professional musician to sing from space and only the seventh space tourist to visit the station. "This voyage is a product of a dream, my dream," she said. "Finally it can be a reality. I am more excited about this than anything I have done in my life to date."

The exact schedule for the trip has yet to be finalised however it is believed she will be launching in to space aboard a Soyuz as part of a crew of three. Her place on the flight was organised by Vienna-based company Space Adventures which also assisted previous space tourist, Cirque du Soleil chief executive Guy Laliberte, get in to space at a cost of $35M.

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

What a waste,To send a stupid singer into space,for no ther reason because she has money,notice I didn't say she can sing,I cant stand that heshe's music.She has no reason being there except to take up space,Its not like she is going to help save the mission or anything,she is just going to be in the way taking up space and using oxegen that is needed.Heck if I was up there I would kick her into space without a suit and watch her head explode.

What a Waste,who cares,she is LAME.and so is her so called music.Just my opinion. I'm a metal man and classic rock guy myself but that doesn't mean I can't give credit where it's due. You may not like the sounds of her style but you gotta give her props for that voice.

Also her Album from space will be unique. Worthwhile to check out im sure. The only way I would by her Loser album would be for target practice,Her singing in space would only bring one of two kinds of Aliens,On bent on her destuction for fouling up space with her self-assorbed music and the other would be Aliens comming to someones cries of pain only to find out it was a stupid human and put her out of her suffering.But if they find out we put her there....ZAP!!! no more Earth.I know if I were an Alien I would concider her being there an Act of War .either way she's dead.
