Cirque du Soleil designed shows are a predominant offering throughout Las Vegas. Now, Las Vegas Backstage Access has just learned that founder Guy Laliberte is set to become Canada’s first space tourist when he travels on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the space station in September.
The 49-year-old Quebec billionaire will become the seventh private citizen to visit the international space station since April 2001.
The cost of flying to the space station is estimated to be $25 million.
One can only imagine how the unearthly experience will further stimulate development of Cirque shows in Las Vegas.
