Director Bryan Singer Signs Up For Space Flight
He was inspired to make the journey while planning a shuttle scene in last year's blockbuster film Superman Returns. Singer's fellow space travelers will include former Dallas star Victoria Principal and numerous other well-off entrepreneurs and business bosses. Virgin Galactic has so far recruited around 200 people for its two and a half hour flights, set to start from 2009.
The spacecraft will be attached to the underside of a jet carrier and will be released at 50,000 feet, when a rocket will ignite and shoot the craft towards space at over 3,000 miles per hour. It will peak at 400,000 feet, where the travelers will enjoy four or five minutes of weightless conditions.
