Virgin Galactic Spaceship Two
September 7, 2012 by staff
Virgin Galactic Spaceship Two, Speaking at the Farnborough Airshow, Sir Richard said Virgin Galactic wants to “revolutionise the way we get to space” and that he and his children will be the first passengers when the space tourism programme begins.
The rockets on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo have been qualified for powered flight and could conduct test runs before the end of the year.
The first paying passengers are likely to be flown into space in 2014.
A total of 529 people – more than the number of humans who have ever travelled to space – have put their names down for the $200,000 (£130,000) trips, which will last for around two hours and travel 60 miles high.
Virgin Galactic is now also planning to launch satellites into space by 2016 using an aircraft called LauncherOne.
