Runway for World’s First Space Tourist Unveiled.

 

The search for a space tourist launch.

The world’s first commercial passenger spaceship moved a step closer to take off  as Richard Branson unveiled a new runway at a remote New Mexico spaceport.



Branson and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson hosted a ceremony marking the completion of the main runway at Spaceport America, near the town of Las Cruces where the Virgin Galactic project is based.


SpaceShipTwo, a six-seat craft which is scheduled to carry paying customers into suborbital space by early 2012, made its maiden flight above the Californian desert in March.


On Friday the aircraft — re-named the VSS Enterprise — flew high above the new two-mile (3.2-kilometer) long, 200-foot (60-meter) wide runway in tandem with its mothership, WhiteKightTwo or Eve.


Guests for the ceremony included people who have already paid deposits and are waiting for the day they go into space.
Virgin started taking deposits from people wanting to become astronauts in 2005 and has now collected 50 million dollars in deposits from more than 380 people willing to pay the 200,000 dollar ticket price.


What do you think of the project, will you pay 200,000 dollar to go into space? Check out the video now….
