SpaceShipOne, VirginGalactic and other space adventures
SpaceShipOne should launch their first, of two, scheduled flights to win the x-price today. Hope they do as well as they did on their first test run. Virgin believes in them as well and just and announced VirginGalactic:
Over five years Virgin expects to create around 3000 astronauts and the price per seat on each flight, which will include at least three days of pre-flight training, are expected to start at around £115,000 ($190,000). Virgin will reinvest the proceeds in developing a new generation of vehicles for further space ventures. To date the cheapest space tourism experiences in government built and taxpayer funded spaceships cost over $15,000,000 per seat.
