How much is a Virgin Galactic flight ticket to space?
Virgin Galactic’s flight ticket to space for $450,000 The price has been determined. However, in addition to this price $150,000 deposit You must also be ready to invest. If you sacrifice a total of $600,000, there is no obstacle to becoming an astronaut.
For this 450 thousand dollars, the company will go to the border of space. 90 minute ride will take the chance. Passengers can enjoy a few minutes of zero-gravity and stunning Earth views from 17 windows, as shown in a new video.
The ticket also includes several days of astronaut training, Under Armor spacesuit and includes membership in the Future Astronaut community. All flights will depart from Spaceport America in New Mexico. Virgin Galactic was originally set to launch public and commercial research flights last year, but has been delayed until 2022.
Sub-orbital spaceflights certainly aren’t cheap, but a 10-day SpaceX flight you will pay for from $55 million much less. Virgin Galactic’s main competitor is Blue Origin, owned by Jeff Bezos, but that company has yet to set an exact price for suborbital tickets.
Late last year, Virgin Galactic had sold 100 tickets for space travel for the price of $450,000. For now, it is a matter of curiosity where space travels will go, as about 700 people, including Elon Musk, have made reservations.
