British singer Sarah Brightman may become next space tourist

A new space tourist may go to the International Space Station (ISS in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in 2015), a source in the rocket ad space industry told Interfax-AVN on Wednesday.

"The name of the next space tourist who will most likely fly to the ISS in 2015 will be announced in about a month," the source said.

British singer Sarah Brightman may be the next space tourist, the source said.

The singer visited Russia about a month ago and received the approval of a medical commission to begin training in the Cosmonaut Training Center, the source said. Interfax currently has no comments on the resumption of space tourists' flights from Roscosmos and Space Adventures.
