Virgin chief and billionaire Richard Branson has place a timeframe on his plan to launch tourists into space, claiming he and his family will blaze a trail for hundreds of fare-paying passengers by blasting off in December 2013.

Branson also announced that Virgin Galactic, his fledgling commercial space organization, was expanding to incorporate a satellite-launching service that would use a low-price rocket system to propel payloads into orbit.

Virgin Boss Richard Branson announces on Wednesday that SpaceShipTwo will blast off with its first space tourists in 2013.

Some 529 future astronauts, including celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, have so far signed up for $200,000-a-seat flights which will last two hours.

Tipping point of ET disclosure is getting closer!

Boy I would love it...it would be a dream come true. But I don't want to be part of the headline that reads "Passengers of Virgin Galactic lost in space." or maybe I do

i predict two courses for this venture.

the first, one of the flights, packed full of celebrities and wealthy elites blows up in a massive fireball, due to bransons arrogance that he can master space and profit from it,

or b, some rich guy with his camcorder finally films a clear shot of a ufo.

By "space travel" does that mean the craft will be flying the same altitude as the ISS or that it will go to the upper level(s) of our atmosphere where it's like space but you are still technically between the ISS and the planet.

Low Earth orbit and then back down to the Spaceport in New Mexico.

Only $200,000 !

Come on Richard B.
Good start,but you need to mine other planets for real commercial success in the long term.

By 2020 him and James Cameron will become a hopefully more ethical version of the Weyland Yutani Corporation.

NASA were never a commercial outfit though,they were amazing pioneers and researchers.
It wasn't about profit for them.
Saying that,it looks like commercial space travel is on the cusp of taking off-sure it costs alot now,but think of the way jet engines migrated from secret WW2 projects to mainstream public use.

30 years,maybe 20 years we will be able to at least get an orbital holiday as affordable as today's package tour holidays..

My dad always told me I would go to the moon with him on holiday some day.
That was in the 1970's.

The kids of today,they will do stuff like that with tomorrow's tech.
We will go to the stars.

Heard on the msm yesterday that for £100,000,000 you could book a seat to the moon in the near future....now even if it's true who the hell has that kind of money and would they like to be my friend?
