Fly anywhere in the world in 30 minutes

26 Sep, 2014

Branson tells CNN that Galactic’s spaceship technology can be used for rapid air travel:

We’re building spaceships and we’ll initially be sending them into space. And then in time we’ll be manufacturing spaceships that go tremendous speeds and we’ll be transporting people around the world in spaceships at speeds that make Concorde look quite slow … ‘Fast’, if we can pull it off, is 18-and-a-half thousand miles an hour, which means that anywhere in the world you want to go, you get there in half an hour.
