Space for the Rich and Risky

This artist's conception of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo during a sub-orbital flight into space cues us in to the latest plans of Virgin founder Richard Branson. According to Reuters this six-passenger vehicle will undergo test flights in 2010 and start commercial flights between 2011 and 2012. Anybody rich and risky enough to fly?


  1. We have a "Civilian Space Flight" penny jar.

  2. Maybe that jar will come in handy when transporter technology is invented Missy :)

  3. Heard tonight that there is a line of folks willing to plunk down $200k for a few hours (and 5 minutes of weightless) of space travel. What a deal!!
