MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Space Agency Roscosmos has not yet decided who will fly to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard the Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft instead of British singer Sarah Brightman who abandoned her plans to travel to the ISS, the agency’s press service said.
"We are considering various options, negotiations are still under way. When a final decision is taken, we will let everyone know," it said.
Roscosmos thus commented on reports about a possible flight of a cosmonaut from Kazakhstan to the ISS.
According to previous media reports, Brightman may be replaced by Russian businessman Filaret Galchev, Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopiev who has no experience of flying into space or Kazakh cosmonaut Aydin Aimbetov.
The flight of the Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft is scheduled for September 1.
