Laliberté goes into space

Guy Laliberté, the founder of the Cirque du Soleil and the One Drop foundaciation, took off for the stars on 30 September 2009. The 12 day space voyage is part of a campaign to raise awareness about the scarcity of water in some countries in the world. The eternal clown Guy Laliberté has taken his red nose and a copy of the Little Prince with him as a way of demonstrating that this trip is a childhood dream come true. This new space tourist even plans on sharing the book with the spaceship’s crew. And during his stay the “space clown” will give several performances including a special show beamed from the international space station on 9 October.
