Space Adventures Anyone?

Do you recall when Sir Richard Branson unveiled SpaceShipOne…the world’s first private spaceship which flew high-altitude flights in 2004?  And that was followed in late 2009 by SpaceShipTwo.  And more recently, during the 2012 Farnborough International Air Show, Virgin Galactic announced LauncherOne, a new air-launched rocket specifically designed to deliver small satellites into orbit.  The company plans to offer commercial flights by 2016.

I still have quite a few journeys to take on earth yet, so you will not find me in the  queue for a space trip any time soon.  How about you?
