For the time being, it appears that the presale will be limited to 1,000 clients, or at least that's how many Virgin Galactic CEO Michael Colglazier expects to have lined up once commercial service begins later in 2022.
Guests who pay nearly half a million for a seat will also enjoy on-site accommodations at Spaceport America in New Mexico, with "bespoke itineraries" and "world-class facilities," according to Virgin Galactic.
It's likely that the freeze-dried astronaut meals will be limited.
If you're interested in all of that (plus the 90-minute flight itself, which includes the ferry ride up strapped to the carrier plane and the "several minute"-long part where you're weightless and able to see Earth from the edge of space), but you only have $150,000 right now, we've got good news: That's all you'll need for the deposit, with the balance due just before the flight
What do you guys think? Wanna go to space?
