Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson has signed a £14m agreement which will see his company take passengers into space.
The British entrepreneur is having five “spaceliners” built in the US by the team behind the SpaceShipOne vehicle.

The California-based rocket plane became the first privately developed carrier to go above 100km in June.

Sir Richard says it will cost around £100,000 to go on a “Virgin Galactic” spaceliner, and the first flights should begin in about three years’ time.

If it is a success, we want to move into orbital flights and then, possibly, even get a hotel up there.

So all I need now is the £100,000 and I am off.

I wonder if CDFreaks would cover the costs. I could provide a nice article on it. Maybe titled “Can I copy StarForce 3 In Space” or “How To Copy Your Protected CD’s While Weightless”. :stuck_out_tongue:
