    All
    the space tourists who have traveled to the International Space Station
    were trained in Russia and sent into orbit on Russian Soyuz capsules,
    although their trips were organized by a Virginia-based company.
    Canadian
    Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte, who spent 12 days in space in
    September 2009,
    was the last space tourist to travel to the station.
    Russia halted space tourism this year after the crew size was increased,
    using the seats in Soyuz that would have been sold to paying travelers

    Guy Laliberte ends his space jaunt with a smile

    12/10/2009





    Circus tycoon Guy Laliberte provides some earthy humour - as he ends his space jaunt yesterday.
    Guy, 50, sported a clown's nose and flashed victory signs after his
    three-man Russian capsule touched down in Kazakhstan after his 11-day
    voyage.
    The Canadian mogul - worth £1.5billion after founding Cirque du
    Soleil - paid a reported £22million to travel to the International Space
    Station.

    From space, he hosted an international show to highlight the scarcity of clean water for many of the world's poor.

    He returned to Earth with Nasa's Michael Barratt and Russia's
    Gennady Padalka, both returning from six months aboard the orbiting
    satellite.
    A Moscow official said: "As you can see, they are uplifted and in a great mood."



    ***************

    What the hell is this guy on??? affraid he spends 22 MILLION POUNDS and then sits up there in space talking about the poor and the lack of the worlds clean water.

    What a disgrace... that is the most selfish story I have heard in a long time. just think what he could have done with all that money??? Im so angry!!

    Spaceflight experience


    In September 2009, Guy Laliberté became the first Canadian private
    space explorer. His mission was dedicated to raising awareness on water
    issues facing humankind on planet Earth, making his spaceflight the
    first, in his own words, "Poetic Social Mission" in space. Under the
    theme Moving Stars and Earth for Water, this first Poetic Social Mission
    in space aimed at touching people through an artistic approach: a
    special 120-minute webcast program featuring various artistic
    performances unfolding in 14 cities on five continents, including the International Space Station. [4]

    Its a big issue regarding water.

    http://www.wateraid.org/international/about_us/frequently_asked_questions/5910.asp#from

    and it looks to me that 22 million would have helped greatly towards water sanitation projects. What is the point in spending that money floating about in space saying thats a stunt for AWARENESS you can spread AWARENESS of anything on the internet, you dont need to go to space for 12 days and waste that money to do this. Im quite dumbfounded.

    On that link above it tells us that just £15 is enough to help one person gain access to safe water and sanitation and improve their hygiene practices.

    If that is the case - then just think what Guy libertie money could have done, but instead it has only publicised him and brought attention to HIM.

    This is what truly and greatly hacks me off because it is totally unbelievable in terms of practical help its USELESS.
