No Sara Brightman Blastoff For ISS Trip

There will apparently be no Sara Brightman blastoff to the International Space Station (ISS), as the singer has decided to postpone a previously scheduled 10-day adventure in space. Brightman was originally supposed to have her adventure into space on the ISS on September 1. It was reported that Brightman had already paid out $52 million to experience an adventure in space on the ISS and be part of a three-person crew of astronauts.

Sara Brightman is Popular Singer, Recording Star

Brightman is famous as a singer in the Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera role of opera singer character Christine Daae. She told her fans that the reason for no Sara Brightman blast-off adventure into space is due to some personal family reasons. She is also known for several other singing venues in her concert and recording career.
These include Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love, as well as a duet with the tenor singer Andrea Boccelli, called “Time to Say Goodbye,” which went gold in the United States and went to number one on the Billboard charts for over 30 weeks, selling over 12 million copies of it all over the world. Some of her other titles include “Symphony,” “Encore,” “Classics,” “Fly,” “La Luna,” “Timeless,” “Eden,” “Fly 2,” “Dive,” “As I Came of Age,” “Songs That Got Away” and “Sarah Brightman Sings the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.”

Sara Brightman Wants Unknown Postponement

Brightman has said that she was excited to be the first professional singer to go onto the ISS, and it is unknown how long she plans to postpone her possible adventure out in space. Recently, the Russians announced their own postponement of the next scheduled launch of their Soyuz rocket. The postponement is due to the accident of losing control of the last cargo supply ship meant to resupply the ISS, and it falling and burning up in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Backup for Sara Brightman Ready to Go Now

Since there will be no Sara Brightman Blast-off for the ISS, her backup Satoshi Takamatsu is slated to go for a space adventure of her own to get to go up in a Russian Soyuz capsule and spend 10 days on the ISS. She may still go up in space on the original date of September 1st, but that could be delayed depending on the investigation of the failed supply run.

According to Space Adventures, Brightman could still go up at a future date since she has had all the required medical tests and training already. However, for now, there will be no Sara Brightman blast-off into space to go to the International Space Station.
