Submission + - Lord British flies into Space in October

root_42 writes: While the Soyuz TMA-12 has just blasted off into space on its way to the ISS with two Russian cosmonauts and a Korean astronaut onboard, Lord British, also known as Richard Garriot, is training for the next flight, Soyuz TMA-13. He will return with the current TMA-12 about two weeks later. He paid $30 million for his flight. I figure a lot of us here envy him for this. Space.com notes the following not-so widely known fact:

Garriott will be the sixth paying visitor to the ISS, but the first American second-generation spaceflyer to reach orbit. His father, Owen Garriott, is a retired NASA astronaut who flew aboard the U.S. Skylab space station and shuttle Columbia, and will serve as chief scientist for the coming spaceflight.
