Virgin Galactic is reportedly re-opening ticket sales after almost a decade. This gives anyone who can afford it the chance to take a trip to space! The news came after Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. (SPCE) founder Richard Branson successfully rode a rocket developed by his company over New Mexico last Sunday along with three crewmembers.
- Single-seat reservations which will begin at $450,000 (about 22.8 million pesos)
- Multi-seat reservations for couples, families, and friends
- A full-flight buyout (all 6 seats) for a “modest premium”
The company also reportedly revealed during an investor call last Thursday that more than 125,000 people from 190 countries have donated for “Space For Humanity”. Two seats on SpaceShipTwo will be raffled to donors of the non-profit organization whose goal is to help “democratize space”.
