The company Virgin Galactic has been set up in Britain to take tourists to the edge of space. It hopes to offer flights starting in 2009, costing about £10^5 per seat. It's also partnering with NASA to develop cheaper alternatives, which may be used to train astronauts as well. Their spaceship is based on SpaceShipOne, the first private spaceship to go into space.
