Many people dispute that Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spaceplane actually reaches the edge of space. The dispute is based on the height the vehicle reaches not actually being “in space”.
It is not for me to argue whether Branson’s vehicle has actually reached space or not, I’m I luxury travel expert and not a space expert, but take a look at the incredible video below showing the views that you will enjoy if you take one of these first flights into “space”.
It’s hard not to be blown away by the curvature of the earth and how delicate it looks from above. Given the extraordinary views and even with the equally extraordinary price tag of $250,000 a seat, I doubt there will be many complaints, assuming the flight goes to plan.
I am a nervous flyer on commercial carriers so I won’t be on the first flight or the second, but I can see the appeal.
