Sir Richard Branson says his Virgin Galactic team have been working day and night for the past 15 months to get SpaceShipTwo ready for taking passengers on a trip of a lifetime.
Here is what you can expect from purchasing a £174,500-ticket for the voyage into space:
- Flight time of approximately two hours
- 60-minute journey from take-off to release from the WhiteKnightTwo carrier at approximately 50,000ft
- Independent flight time of 30 times
- "Unique thrills of spaceflight, enjoying the opportunity to leave seats to float in zero gravity for several minutes"
- Filmed version of the flight
Taking into account the 30-minute independent flight time, based on the full price of a ticket, half an hour on the unsupported spaceship will cost £5,800, or roughly about £97 per second.
