The British singer Sarah Brightman will start training for a tourist flight to the International Space Station (ISS) in the beginning of 2015, Yury Lonchakov, the chief of the Cosmonaut Training Center, told Interfax-AVN on Wednesday.
"She will start training at Zvyozdny Gorodok in January 2015, and so we expect her to come," Lonchakov said.
A training plan for Brightman has already been compiled, Lonchakov said. "I believe her training will be successful," he said.
It was reported earlier that the price for flying into space exceeded $50 million for the last tourists.
