$200K for 5 Minutes of Weightlessness and a Great View? Cool!

SpaceShipTwo under construction

Virgin Galactic has just publicly revealed SpaceShipTwo, “the world’s first commercial spaceship.” The firm already has 300 people who have reserved their spots with at least a deposit, though those flights won’t begin for a couple years. It sounds like a lot of money, but it’s a whole order of magnitude less than billionaires have been paying to ride in old Russian rockets, lately. I sure wouldn’t mind the experience, but I think I’ll wait until they can knock a couple zeroes off the price….

P.S.   I guess we DON’T need the government even for space travel. Look out NASA!
