Japanese entrepreneur Satoshi Takamatsu to be Sarah Brightman’s back-up crew member  will start training in Star City late this month, – American Company Space Adventures  dealing with this space tours by agreement with Roscosmos.

In December 2014 Takamatsu was approved as the back-up space tourist. We remind that British singer Sarah Brightman  is to go to the ISS in autumn 2015.

“We have been cooperating with Mr. Takamatsu for the recent 10 years, – Space adventures spokesman reported, – and since we strive to develop private space flights direction we hope this cooperation will provide space flight  opportunities for the other Japanese citizens either.

Takamatsu holds a position of recently established Space Travel Company President. He has already passed medical check and preliminary training program in Roscosmos. He will also pass the training US Aeronautics and Space Exploration National Agency.

According to Space Adventures 51-years old Takamatsu is going to broadcast his preflight training in Russia on-line. Takamatsu says he is very happy to have the opportunity to go to space and hopes to show that everyone is able to make his dream come true.
