Sarah Brightman's Space Dream Begins

Singer Starts Training For September Flight to the International Space Station

Sarah Brightman embarks on her space training in Russia's Star City on Monday, in preparation for her flight to the International Space Station in September 2015.

Ever since she witnessed the 1969 moon landings on television as a small girl, it has been Sarah's life long ambition to travel into space. Sarah will become the first professional musician to do so.

"It has been an exciting journey since the announcement of my flight in October 2012 and I am very much looking forward to starting my training here in Star City. It will be an incredible six months and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you along the way.’'
