Virgin Galactic – Space Tourism and Exploration

In really wonderfull talk Burt Rutan, legendary aircraft (and spacecraft) designer, at TED conference gave lot of reasons why space voyages should come to commercial market. Once it comes it would provide huge financial injection which could lead to higher level of space exploration.

You can watch his talk at TED.com, incredible collection of videos from incredible conference, Davos for Optimists like they say 🙂

“Burt Rutan won the $10M Ansari X-Prize for SpaceShipOne, the first privately funded craft to enter space twice in a two-week period. He’s now collaborating with Virgin Galactic to build the first rocketship for space tourism”

you can enter the world of Virgin Galatic via their website and look at photos, videos or even book you space flight. It’s not that expensive but I don’t have that money… Still ! ;
