September 28, 2009--Russian security officers walk in front of a Soyuz rocket as it's rolled out to the launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The two-person crew, which will take off September 30 for the International Space Station, will have its own in-flight entertainment: Canadian circus entrepreneur Guy Laliberte, who paid a reported U.S. $35 million to join the mission.

During the two-day flight, Laliberte plans to make the crew laugh and produce a Web event on the topic of clean water, BBC News reported.
