Dennis Tito’s life dream came true

The Russian booster Soyuz-U carrying the manned spacecraft Soyuz TM-32 with the first visiting expedition to the International Space Station, including an American space tourist, was launched from the Baikonur space center at 11:37 a.m. Moscow time on Saturday, news agencies report. In an interview with CNN Dennis Tito, the first ever space tourist, said: "This is not a vacation, (it's) the fulfillment of a life's dream to fly into space. "Only 400 people have flown in space, so that is for me a privilege to be able to actually observe the Earth from outer space, circle the Earth you know once every 90 minutes."
