Outer Space; 50 Plus Miles Above Earth: When the Wright Brothers took flight in Kitty Hawk they achieved something others thought impossible. Today Richard Branson and the crew of Virgin Galactic have become pioneers of human space travel, they will experience G force and space first-hand helmet-free! Just imagine your weightlessness and staring back at Earth from Space crazy right. My question is where are the hovercrafts? I want to travel on water, above pavement/blacktop, and elevate over the traffic.
A very exciting day for everyone involved with this project. Human space travel is now something possible for the rich & elite at $250,000 per ticket. The future plans are to cheapen the tickets so they will be affordable for the average Joe.
IMUer’s watch the video above but be sure to fast forward a bit to about the 9:30 mark to watch and listen to the inaugural Virgin Galactic flight. Check out the feed below for some stills of the ship and peep Richard and the crew floating around in space.
