Virgin Galactic will be in space for test flights in weeks

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.
