Virgin Galactic next phase of test flights will see its spaceship burn its rockets longer and go faster with the goal of reaching space.
A ticket on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two does not come cheap. Currently, the fare price stands at around $250,000.
Yet, while the cost of a commercial trip to space with Virgin Galactic is not expected to come down in the immediate future, Branson said “ultimately” he would like to see the price fall to around $40,000 or $50,000 over the next decade.
Richard Branson says Virgin Galactic will be flying space within weeks.
