Not that a lot of selling is going to be required for the space upstart. Already 529 people have booked a flight, no small number when you consider the ticket price is $200,000. You can sign up on the company website, and sooner than later might be a good idea if you plan on going any time soon.

Virgin Galactic is a company within Richard Branson’s Virgin Group which plans to provide sub-orbital spaceflights to space tourists, suborbital launches for space science missions and orbital launches of small satellites. Further in the future Virgin Galactic hopes to offer orbital human spaceflights as well. Virgin Galactic’s spacecraft are launched from a large aeroplane, giving the spacecraft more initial speed and altitude than if it were launched from the ground.
