The Russian Parliament voted against sending Madonna to the ISS, 252-42. Oh the humanity!!
If we had a Space Elevator, she could just book a ride to ISS orbit, hop a shuttle craft, and pop on over (yes I know I’m oversimplifying). I’m not sure why the Russians refused her money - they’ve allowed others to pay their way to the ISS.
Perhaps LiftPort can talk her into being an investor…
