Virgin Galactic Just Got Closer to Making Space Tourism a Reality

Space Tourism just became a bit more real with Virgin Galactic’s trip to the edge of space.

SpaceShipTwo launched from California’s Mojave air and space port. SpaceShipTwo reached on altitude of 45,000 feet, which NASA defines as the edge of space.

The vehicle carried 4 payloads and a mannequin on it’s flight above the Earth. It just goes to illustrate that Richard Branson is serious about the prospects of Space Tourism. The company has collected the $250,000 deposit for a 90 minute flight to the edge of space, from 600 individuals so far.

My new book “Future Fantastic” is scheduled for release on September 15th, 2019. It will contain chapters on the Colonization of Mars and the Colonization of the Solar System.

Come get an early chapter, pre-release date.

The future is bright!
