LONDON, February 26 /TASS/. Space tourist flight training will continue after vacation days for British singer Sarah Brightman ahead of September's lift-off to the International Space Station.
Temporary absence from Moscow was pre-planned, said spokesman Chris Goodman, representing Brightman’s interests. The current break in training schedules was booked well ahead and the course resumes in March, Goodman told TASS.
The soprano, famed for starring roles in London West End musicals, is to spend 10 days in space from September 1, paying around $52 million to become the world’s eighth space tourist.
Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City outside Moscow dates Brightman's holiday leave as from February 21 until March 11. Vacations are part of the regular training schedule, according to Roskosmos space agency.
Before returning to Moscow, the hopeful flyer will brief reporters in London on mission plans. She will also meet the media in Moscow, and before the flight from Baikonur space centre in Kazakhstan.
