Wait … How Much Is A Ticket On Virgin Galactic’s Space Plane?
Talk about out of this world! In an effort to become the world’s first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic launched a successful test flight of its space plane, VSS Unity, this week.
The space plane is designed to carry up to six passengers into space, allowing them to float in zero gravity for several minutes during the flight, and “experience astounding views of Earth from the black sky of space,” from approximately 62 miles above Earth. (The video above shows some highlights from the maiden voyage.)
Sound fun? You better start saving — the cost for a ride is $250,000 per ticket.
