Space Tourism for All Thanks Mr Branson

We were watching the news the other night, my wife and I, when we heard the fantastic story about Richard Branson's space tourism company; virgin galactic. He is entering a commercial venture to make it possible for ordinary people like you and me to go into space for a few hours. The price now, £110,000, but Branson himself admits that this price is set to drop dramatically. The idea being that ordinary people can afford to be astronauts. It is a really fantastic plan and Mr Branson deserves a big pat on the back. It occurred to me that in my lifetime I will have the opportunity to go into space. Imagine that! Even though I am sure it will be a few years away my wife and I are very excited.
