Sarah Brightman to Sing in Space
莎拉·布莱曼有望上太空高歌

Sarah Brightman could be singing from space someday in the near future.
莎拉·布莱曼在不久的将来可能在太空唱歌。

The British classical recording artist recently announced that she had bought a seat to fly on a Russian spaceship, describing it as a chance to live out a childhood desire beyond her wildest dreams.
这位英国古典唱片艺术家最近宣布说她买到了俄罗斯飞船的一个座位,并将其描述为是一个实践她童年最为狂野的梦想的机会。

Brightman, 52, who once had a hit song called “I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper,” plans to rocket some 250 miles above Earth to the International Space Station—becoming the seventh space tourist since American Dennis Tito became the first in 2001.
52岁的布莱曼唱过一首著名的《我的心迷失在星河中》,她计划乘坐飞船到达距离地面约250英里高的国际空间站——成为继2001年美国的丹尼斯·提托之后第7个太空游客。

Once there, she said she intended to become the first professional musician to sing from space.
一旦她到了那儿,她说她将成为第一个在太空唱歌的职业音乐家。

“This voyage is a product of a dream, my dream. Finally it can be a reality. I am more excited about this than anything I have done in my life to date,” she told a news conference in Moscow.
“这次旅行是一个有关我的梦想的结果,它最终将成为现实,我对这次旅行的期待胜过了我迄今为止的生命中所做的任何事。”她在莫斯科的新闻发布会上如此说道。

Brightman, who helped popularize the classical crossover genre, added that the schedule for her flight would “be determined very shortly by (Russian federal space agency) Roscosmos and the ISS partners.”
曾推广新古典风格的布莱曼补充说她的航行时间表将“很快就会由(俄罗斯联邦航天局)俄罗斯宇航局和空间站合作伙伴们确定下来。”

Alexey Krasnov, head of the ISS program at Roscosmos, said Brightman had passed the required mental and physical examinations to fly into space.
国际空间站项目在俄罗斯宇航局的负责人阿列克谢·克拉斯诺夫说,布莱曼已经通过了上太空所需的精神和身体的检查。

Space Adventures, the Vienna-based company that organizes flights for private spacefarers, did not disclose how much Brightman had paid for her seat on the Soyuz (“联盟”号火箭). But the last space tourist, Cirque du Soleil (太阳马戏团) chief executive Guy Laliberte, paid around $35 million for the flight.
太空冒险,总部设在维也纳,是一家为私人太空游客组织航班的公司,它并没有公开布莱曼为“联盟”号火箭的座位花费了多少钱。但是最近一个太空游客,太阳马戏团的董事长拉里伯特,为他的旅行花费将近3500万美元。
