It was bound to happen eventually - Richard Branson announced
the launch of Virgin Galactic
, a joint venture between Virgin and Mojave Aerospace Ventures, the company responsible for SpaceShipOne
. They expect to send up to 3000 people into suborbital space over five years for £115k each (around $200k)and the first ship will be named the Virgin SpaceShip VSS Enterprise
(well, I guess he can name it what he wants...). It's all immensely exciting, but personally I think Virgin Spacelines sounds classier.
