Canadian Stilt Walker in Space

Guy Laliberté, founder & CEO of Cirque du Soleil, successfully reached orbit on September 30, 2009 aboard Soyuz TMA-16 as Canada's first space tourist.  Laliberté, along with professional astronauts Jeff Williams and Maksim Surayev, is enroute to the International Space Station . He will return to Earth on board Soyuz TMA-14.

Laliberté's flight marks the third space flight by a Canadian in the same year, after Robert Thirsk and Julie Payette. He is also the third Québécois in space.
