A flight on Virgin Galactic will set you back $450,000 with a $150,000 deposit needed to hold your spot. Whoa!
Reservations became available yesterday, February 16. According to USA Today, “Tickets will be available to 1,000 customers for trips later this year.”
Flights will be for a quick 90 minutes, give or take and will take off from Spaceport American, located in New Mexico.
A statement from Virgin Galactic mentions that during the flight, “The spaceship gracefully flips while astronauts enjoy several minutes of out-of-seat weightlessness and breath-taking views of Earth from the spaceship’s 17 windows.”
Flying to space is just a bit out of our budget… We had an amazing time on our scenic flight to Mount Everest. A scenic flight to space won’t be happening.
