A Ride into Space… The Ultimate Adventure If You Can Afford It

This video is no longer available.

Some call it the ultimate adventure…if you can afford it.  Over 600 people have shelled out tens of thousands of dollars for a seat on the first spaceship offering rides to ordinary customers.  Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin’s “Galatic” will start shuttling passengers into space next year.  Participants will receive three days of training and health checks and then a few hours in flight with about 3 minutes weightless…in space.  That is, if the FAA gives “Galactic” the green light.  Virgin says the commercial launch is just months away.
