Virgin Galactic launched a few years back with the promise to send passengers in space. Projected to start commercial flights in 2009 or 2010, Virgin promises passengers a 4 to 5 minute zero G flight in space for the going price of $200,000 per passenger. Virgin Galactic has a 9 minute video on its website narrated by Virgin CEO Richard Branson that is truly amazing and makes me I could go on the suborbital flight tomorrow. Damn the risk! I want to see Earth from above. Until the flight, I guess I’ll stick to Google Earth.
