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.
