To The Moon, Richard!

“A Virgin flight to the moon? Not so crazy, according to British entrepreneur Richard Branson, who recently announced that his company Virgin Group plans to launch commercial space flights over the next few years. And while the effort may sound fanciful, Virgin is actually quite serious, having just struck a deal with pioneering aviation designer Burt Rutan to build an aircraft based on his SpaceShipOne vessel”.

One of the reasons I really like Virgin’s Richard Branson.
