New space race

28 Sep, 2013

Branson is interviewed on CNN about private competition in space:

I think it’s the start of a new space race. It’s not been easy. It’s taken us five years more than we thought it would take. But finally they pulled it off.

His children will be on the flight:

People risked a lot to get space off the ground in the first place, but unless you risk something, the world stays still.

The first customers will be the wealthiest 1%:

Initially it’s very much the wealthiest who will use it, but through these wealthy people being willing to be pioneers I think millions of people will one day have the chance to go to space.
