Baikonur tour — group admission started for September, 1st
As it turned out British singer Sarah Brightman that was to be the 8th space tourist in the history of mankind officially cancelled her flight participation.
Nevertheless her refusal won’t affect space program and Soyuz TMA-18M will be launched to the ISS from Baikonur spaceport on September 1 as planned before.
There is still a plot who is going to be the 3rd crew member apart from Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Volkov and ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen. Whether it will be back-up to-be-space-tourist Japanese entrepreneur Satoshi Takamatsu passing preflight trainings in GCTC together with Brightman or one of new Russian cosmonauts?
We’ll live and see and right now you have a great chance to book the tour to Baikonur spaceport and watch the launch with your own eyes.
Group admission started!
Wish space crew a good luck seeing them off to space!
