$200,000 and Spaced Out...

Not sure I'd pay this much for the thrill myself...

Sir Richard Branson has unveiled the rocket plane he will use to take fare-paying passengers into space.

SpaceShipTwo was presented to the world in Mojave, California.

The vehicle will undergo testing over the next 18 months before being allowed to take ticketed individuals on short-hop trips...

I think I'll wait until you get a little longer in "space" before putting my money down.

I'd want at least one lap around the planet.

Is 68 miles high enough to actually be weightless or is it the old 'you feel weightless while we plummet to earth trick'?

They need Ryanair to get in on the act, the only problem that there might be
is, that they probably won't fly anywhere close to the designated spot.

Alan Shepard just went up and down on his space shot. He went 115 miles up. I would think 68 miles would not get you weightlessness until you started down and then you "feel" like you are weightless. That is like hitting the brakes too hard in your car.

That's what I was thinking. They already do that for training, in big jets.

There'd be a few credit card booking surcharges too, and a further
fee for taking a leak in the onboard khazi come to that...
