Garriott goes into space
As reported by the BBC, Richard Garriott blasted off in the Soyuz TMA-13 spacecraft in Kazakhstan yesterday and is now in space.
He’ll be on the International Space Station for the next ten days.
Garriott paid £15 million for the trip, and is only the sixth civilian to ever go into orbit.
