Commercial space flights closer than you think
January 14, 2014, 22:21:29 CET | mm-inews



Richard Branson is bringing commercial space travel closer to you with his company Virgin Galactic, following a third successful test flight of their revolutionary SpaceShipTwo space-shuttle.

SpaceShipTwo reached record heights of 71,000 feet, flying over the Mojave Desert in California at supersonic speed before safely re-entering after ten minutes of flight.

It is reported that ticket prices will be as low as $250,000 when it is officially launched this year.

How long do you think it will be before the regular men and women that can't afford to rake out $250,000 will have the chance to travel to space? Do you think ticket prices in the future will come down to $20,000 or even $2,000?
