Virgin Galactic

You've got to love Richard Branson ain't ya!

    Virgin Galactic: "London, Sept 27 - Today at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London's West End, Sir Richard Branson and Burt Rutan made their announcement to the world's media that Virgin Galactic was now in a position to commence a programme of work that would result in the world's first affordable space tourist flights in 2 to 3 years time. "
Oh well, there goes Ben's college fund ;-)

Virgin Galactic is the name of the company. About $200k get's you 4 minutes of weightlessness (and a 4 hour flight).

I suppose Stelios will have the price down to a mere 99quid by the end of the decade.
