Sarah Brightman is preparing to become a space tourist, but how much is she paying for the privilege?The British soprano has booked a seat on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft, for a 10 day visit to the International Space Station. Similar flights were made between 2001 and 2008, with Soyuz’s so-called “space tourists” paying between $20 million and $50 million for the exclusive experience.
Brightman’s flight was arranged for her by Space Adventures of Vienna, VA but according to CBS News, the company’s president, Eric Anderson would not divulge how much she had paid for the trip-of-a-lifetime.
