Virgin Galactic restart ticket sales at $450,000
Virgin Galactic, the space travel company founded by British billionaire Richard Branson, has reopened ticket sales, with prices starting at $450,000. Around 600 individuals paid $200,000 to $250,000 for seats aboard Virgin's spacecraft between 2005 and 2014. The next test flight will take place in September, with personnel of the Italian Air Force taking part. The firm has roughly quadrupled the sum previously paid by customers.
