Leonardo DiCaprio takes to space from New Mexico Spaceport

As we told you here Leonardo DiCaprio’s Titanic co-star, Kate Winslet was on hand for the grand opening of Sir Richard Branson’s Spaceport America – the world’s only commercial space destination port, back in 2011.

Well now one of the biggest stars on earth is slated to take to the heavens with three generous bidders who collectively paid $3.8M to launch from Spaceport New Mexico with the actor.

The galaxy bound foursome was assembled as a top offering of the Cinema Against AIDS Charity Auction held on Thursday night at the Cannes Film Festival’s amfAR Gala. This year the annual event raised a record $25M to fund AIDS research.

As predicted this is just one in the beginning of many major celebrity visits and tourism prospects the spaceport lends to New Mexico!
