Virgin Galactic is a company owned and established by Richard Branson’s Virgin Group to undertake the challenge of making private space travel available to everyone and by creating the world’s first commercial spaceline.

Virgin will own and operate privately built spaceships, based on the history making SpaceShipOne.

These spaceships, which are currently under construction, will allow affordable private sub-orbital space travel for the first time in history and give you the opportunity to be among the very first private astronauts.

Space tickets are starting at $200,000. Virgin Galactic will seek to reduce this price as fast and as far as possible, allowing many thousands of people to experience space for themselves. Here is a gift you could give someone that has everything, unless they already signed up for their own trip.

Go to then click on “Videos” to learn more about this project. Let the Journey Begin is an animation on what the trip would be like. There are also lots of photos and information. Would you go if you had the chance? I would in a minute!

Have you backed up your data? I just had a 500GB drive fail and all of the data on that drive was lost! But it was a backup drive, so no problem.
