Space tourist ‘Dice-K’ prepares to blast off, New Scientist

“Previous reports have suggested that Enomoto plans to wear a red costume during his flight to emulate Char Aznable, a fighter pilot in the Japanese anime series Gundam.”

Editor’s note: While on-orbit it would seem that Dice-K is going look like a cross between the cartoon character Calvin (i.e. Spaceman Spiff) and the 80’s version of Michael Jackson. I wonder if he will transform into a giant robot during the mission and reboost the ISS. That would be so cool.
