Virgin announced its plans to allow everyone in the world to go to space and experience what its like. The plane launches and you fly 87 miles high (I'm pretty sure thats what they said). You then get to unbuckle, experience weightlessness and get to look out and see the Earth. The plane carries 6 passengers and 2 pilots.
I for one am going. I'm going to save up and as soon as I have the money, I'm going. They say the cost should be around the cost of a plane ticket to Europe.

I just looked at the "Book" option and I guess its just a little more than a flight to Europe. $200,000. I'm pretty sure though I heard last night it was going to be cheaper. I'll see if I can find the news story.

lol, yeah, unless you go first class, a ticket to europe is like $700-800.
