Finally, space scientists get to explore what they have been longing to explore, space itself. Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo has announced the first commercial spaceship, in other words you can visit space now. So how much is the ticket for? Well it will cut you down by $200,000(~55,000KD).
If you ask me whether to pay 700KD for a flight and ticket to watch a football finale in London or pay 55,000KD to visit space, my answer will always be space. The microgravity environment will last for a good six minutes but the entire journey will be around 2.5 hours long from take off to landing.
Virgin Galactic says they have already received $40 million in funds from 300 people. The first flight is expected to be operational on 2015 which I consider a big leap. I bet those 6 minutes in space is the most effective life changing experience one can ever endure.[Source]
