Space Wedding Goes Off Without a Hitch
Richard Garriott is in the news again -- he's moved from Lord British, General British and Astronaut British on to Minister British. Well, Minister-Astronaut, at the very least. Space.com says:
If you can find a woman willing to be married by the King of Ultima while flying parabolic-arcs in the Vomit-Comet, hang on for dear life.
The ceremony was officiated by space tourist Richard Garriott, the son of former NASA astronaut Owen Garriott, who flew to the International Space Station last year in a $30 million deal brokered by the company Space Adventures.
"I am honored to be taking part in Erin and Noah's wedding," Garriott said. "I know firsthand the added thrill microgravity will play in their already joyous event. The excitement from these 'first ever microgravity nuptials' will not soon fade in the minds of all the members of the wedding party."
