Virgin Galatic Unviels WK2 Space Travel Ship – Makes the rest of us feel broke

July 31st, 2008 by

Got 200,000 dollars lying around and are able to make make a 10 percent deposit for a ticket? If so, you probably aren’t the type who knows the meaning of broke and can most likely make plans to sit next to other absorbingly rich people and fly on Virgin Galatic’s new White Knight 2. This week everyone and their mom, from the blogosphere to mainstream media, was invited out to the Mojave dessert to be reminded that space travel will inevitably be for the super rich and the super rich alone. Exactly when travelers are be able to take the flight and how safe and approved this will be hasn’t been determined yet. The concept of commercial space travel is jumping from the realm of science fiction to that of science fact. Check out the video for some clips from the press event.
