In two weeks Roscosmos will take a decision who is going to replace British singer in Soyuz spacecraft flying to the ISS, – GCTC Head Yuri Lonchakov said on Monday.

“Roscosmos has to make a decision. This is an issue of two weeks”, – he said.

British singer Sarah Brightman was to go to the ISS in September 2015 staying onboard for 10 days as a space tourist but late spring cancelled her flight participation for “family reasons”.
