Virgin Galactic flights to blast off in 2013

Virgin chief Richard Branson has put a time frame on his plan to launch tourists into space, claiming he and his family will blaze a trail for hundreds of fare-paying passengers by blasting off in December 2013.

Branson also announced that Virgin Galactic, his fledgling commercial space company, was expanding to include a satellite-launching service that would use a low-cost rocket system to propel payloads into orbit.

Speaking at the UK's Farnborough International Airshow, the British entrepreneur said his adult children, Holly and Sam, would accompany him on board the SpaceShipTwo on its pioneering two-hour voyage into sub-orbital space.

I am quite excited about this and I hope it goes ahead as planned, I have heard Branson telling us for years this would happen and it seems so close now. Just a shame it will be a long time until us mere mortals can afford to get on board.

I am more excited for this man and what he wants to do with his limited time in space...

There's one guy who wants to assume a neutral position, close his eyes and get back to the womb

I hope he gets the experience he is after. :D

200K x 600K = 120B(?) Now thats good business. Just sad, like so many other things only the rich will be able to experience it. Hopefully my kids kids might have the opportunity when the price gets down to 2k (?)

Wish I had the money. Oh, and the nerve.

I can remember my jetliner flights above the clouds, and how amazing I felt when on the ground looking up from where I just came from.

Damn birds, I hate you, you get all the fun.

Tell me about it, when a woman wants it she gets it, men have to put in so much effort. ;)
