British royal Prince Harry has been tipped to be one of the first commercial passengers in space, joining a star-studded mission which could include Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and physicist Stephen Hawking.
The 21-year-old is reported to have discussed the idea with tycoon SIR Richard Branson'S son SAM, who is a close friend of his brother WILLIAM. Branson's Virgin Galactic is hoping to make space travel a reality for more people with flights available from $207,000 (GBP115,000).
A spokesman for the venture says, "We would love to welcome Harry on board and are hopeful he will accept our invitation."
Other big names who have signed up for the flights - due to start in 2008 - include Star Trek actor William Shatner and former Dallas star VICTORIA PRINCIPAL.
