Kate Moss wants to become the first supermodel in space, by signing up with pal SIR Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space flight.

The entrepreneur is selling seats on the mission which, in 2010, will fly a few passengers 113 kilometres (70 miles) into space to orbit Earth.

The trip will cost Moss $200,000 (GBP112,000).

The model spent some time on Branson's Caribbean island Necker after completing a spell in rehab last October (05) and Branson recently convinced her to sign a deal to sell her autobiography.
