I was not aware that the winner of Britain's Got Talent was also being sent into space on Virgin Galactic, Sir Richard Branson's space get away service. But it looks like Ashleigh the winner, turned the offer down and wants to give it to Johnathon who is a big Star Trek fan, but they say their is no room in the ship for Johnathon, I guess his weight 280 pounds.

Animation of Virgin Galactic Space Ship:




After 2 successful launches into space with SpaceShip One (Burt Rutan's invention), the proto-type and winning the X-Prize, this new ship will be larger and hold 6 passengers. They estimate 2 flights a day, at 200,000 dollars per passenger.

They have been testing for years and are close to sending passengers into space.

I think it has to do with the seats and setting arrangement in the fuselage of the spacecraft. I think hes too big for the seat:

Never know : ))) Luciano Pavarotti's fee per performance was 160,000 thousand US dollars, thats a large chunk of money for a 2-3 hour concert. His estimated net worth was 514,000,000 million dollars. Not sure what year they calculated that.

His raw talent is amazing now, what'll it be once it's matured? I'll be looking for his first album.
