Before a group of a paid-up passengers and V.I.P.s, Richard Branson unveiled his SpaceshipTwo, the craft that will take passengers into space and back. The craft consists of two parts, one takes the main passenger craft into the skies, the second detaches itself from the main part and zooms off into space. To be one of the first, you will need to have a hundred thousand or more to spend. The journey will involve a short time of weightlessness. The crafts base location will be the Mojave Desert in California. Although pricey to begin with, it is expected that the cost of travel will fall as more companies enter the market. However that will take ten or twenty years before the average person gets into space.
