Buxr should be large enough within a year's time so that we could have a trip as the 1st place prize, right?
NEW YORK — Virgin Galactic's new commercial spaceship could be flying its first passengers — company founder Sir Richard Branson and his family — in about a year, Branson said today (Nov. 30) on NBC's "Today" show.
"We're about 12 months away," Branson said. The craft, called SpaceShipTwo, will provide tourists with a brief taste of weightlessness and a window on the globe of the Earth from the blackness of space, without making a full orbit around the planet. The ship flies six passengers and two pilots.
