S'pore man pays $1.3m to take family to space

A Singaporean businessman has stepped forward to sign up for himself, his wife and two children to fly together to space. He handed over a cool US$1 million ($1.3 million) for the flight, but asked to remain anonymous because "apparently he hasn't told his wife yet", said Virgin Galactic commercial director Stephen Attenborough, who spoke at an international media and marketing conference in Singapore yesterday. Mr Attenborough said that the Singapore family will become the first Asian family to fly together on the space-tourism airline. More in The New Paper on Tuesday (Nov 15).
