The rocket enthusiast is hoping to become the first amateur to fly into space and has written to David Beckham offering him a journey to the stars. Real Madrid's new signing has reportedly said he would love to fly into space following the end of his football career. This prompted Steve Bennett, the boss of Greater Manchester-based Starchaser Industries, to write to Beckham to offer him a 500,000 trip. In the letter he said: We are delighted to hear you have expressed an interest in space tourism and in particular a trip to the moon.
