He will spend around $35 million from his personal fortune and has been training and undergoing medical exams in Russia for the past few weeks. He plans to use his 13-day trip to space to send a message about the importance of providing access to clean water for all. He created the One Drop Foundation back in 2007. He plans to bring up a poem that he is writing with a friend and the consummate showman is planning on what he calls "an artistic production project, an original one, I hope, that will surprise, will entertain and will achieve the goal of communicating in a massive way this poem, which will be a poem to planet Earth and its inhabitants, with regard to the situation of water in the world."
