Virgin Galactic Flies First Tourists

Virgin Galactic, a premier space tourism company, recently took tourists into space for the first time since its debut commercial flight in June. The VSS Unity spacecraft launched from New Mexico and provided passengers with a five-minute weightless experience. Among those aboard were the first mother-daughter duo, Anastatia Mayers and Keisha Schahaff, and 80-year-old former Olympian Jon Goodwin. This follows Virgin Galactic’s inaugural paid flight last month and Richard Branson’s historic journey in July 2021, making him the first billionaire in space. With the rising interest in space travel, 800 individuals have secured tickets, which now cost 450,000 dollars each due to recent price hikes.
