Sarah Brightman Space

Sarah Brightman Space, British singer Sarah Brightman said on Wednesday that she has always been destined to travel in space, following her announcement that she had bought a ticket abord a Russian rocket to the International Space Station (ISS).

"I'm showing my age now, but I grew up as a child through the 60s, and of course then, with all of the rockets that they were sending up, and obviously the first man on the moon, space was very much in the child's understanding," Brightman said.

Brightman, 52, who is famous for starring in The Phantom of the Opera, plans to rocket some 250 miles above Earth to the ISS - becoming the first space tourist since Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte donned a red clown's nose on his 2009 trip.

While the diva did not disclose the price tag for the trip, the ninth so far brokered by US firm Space Adventures, it can be expected to be at least as much as Russia charges Nasa astronauts for the privilege - more than $50 million. The adventure package includes 12 days in orbit.
Brightman said she will use her mission to promote education for women in the sciences and raise environmental awareness.

She added she was moved by the way astronauts' eyes lit up when they talked about space travel, and she hoped her flight would change her life.

"I think it will be a beautiful journey, and I think just to look back at our planet from that perspective is life-changing. It has to be," she said.
