"Bood' zdorova, Sarah Brightman!" The Russian words for "get well" just might be one of the phrases that the world-famous soprano hears the most as she prepares for spaceflight training at Russia's Star City complex. Brightman arrived in Moscow this week to prepare for her 10-day, $52 million trip to the International Space Station in September. However, Thursday's scheduled start of training had to be delayed until next week because she caught a cold, the Itar-Tass news agency reported. For now, Brightman's trainers will have to keep themselves in the mood by listening to her rendition of "I Will Be With You."
