(by pio dal cin) The Olympic torch will travel to Outerspace for the first time ever. The president of Russia's Sochi Olympic committee Dmitry Chernyshenko announced today " Our ambition to conquer Space for the first time ever in Olympic History, becomes reality" The Eurasian Nation will host the Winter Olympic Games next February 2014.
"On November 29, Expedition 38 crew members will carry the torch to the International Space Station aboard flight Soyuz TMA-11M. The flight crew includes Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, NASA astronaut Richard Mastracchio and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata. An imitation flame will replace the official flame during the spaceflight, because having an open flame on a spaceship would be dangerous."
