It looks like the folks at Virgin have churned something up worth mentioning, and its not crappy cell-phone service. Ever dreamt of being able to go to space but figured all that work was unnecessary? Well it seems even us regular joe blows (the rich ones) may be able to soon. Of course my dad bought "tickets to space" after the first moon-landing, so this may end up being just as useless. But who knows, if the tickets were reasonable (lets say $1000 after a few years) would you do it?

If it's made by Virgin, I'm not stepping foot in that thing.

Besides, space scares me. I'm perfectly fine here on earth.

If they did come down to a level that wouldn't leave me eating Tesco Savers beans for the rest of my life, I'd think about it.
If it came down to the sort of level where it's that or no holidays for a few years, I'd do it.

That's pretty neat, Suzy.
Nine planets surround the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

*cups your balls* "Hello Suzy."


On a serious note...
Tickets to space? Are you ****ing mad, I'd rather not risk that thanks. Even if exploring the unkown was WORTH risking your life and $1000, I still wouldn't.

$1000 is mad cheap for a trip into space. I'd do it if it ever became that cheap.
#19
Well, Suzy, if I had £500 to blow I would do it in a heartbeat, but there are better things to spend that kind of money on rather than spending a couple of minutes in space...

Bingo.

However, Branston means real business. I believe this could be a serious thing, but it won't be as commercially available as they want it to be.

Hi Suzy with balls


I hate space, so I wouldn't want to go there anyways...

'specially with Virgin

Why are so many people hating on Virgin? Sure, Virgin Media is sh*t but their trains are awesome! I get on a Virgin train and if I manage to get a seat bam! legroom! That's what I'm talkin' 'bout! Even if I don't get a seat on a Virgin train (which is most of the time) it's still a pleasant journey. And I'd love to go to space.

when i opened the thread i expected to be about the net neutrality ordeal with Virgin
anyways I hope it turns out well, i would like to see more private companies get into space exploration, and ultimately developing some better technology.

It's not even close to $1000,. I heard about this a few months ago and I think the tickets cost in the region of $20,000.

Dream on.

It costs more than $1000 just for a round trip from the US to China. And I'm pretty sure air planes have been around for a while now.

That's the deposit. Pretty sure full cost is in the region of $200,000... Yup, they do.

Old news is very old though. There haven't been many major developments for a while now.

yeah don't get me started on net neutrality...but i agree, the more private companies get into space travel, the more people will try to push boundaries (which usually turns out well).
