Branson’s Virgin Galactic

(here is a cool promo video from Virgin Galactic)

Richard Branson has set up a company that plans to extend the frontiers of tourism – literally. Virgin Galactic proposes to give space flights (sub-orbital flights) to tourists from late 2009 onwards. Prices per passenger for this 2.5 hour flight start from about Rs 90 lakhs.

Virgin Galactic is in the process of appointing Travel Agents across the world. To my knowledge, nobody has been appointed so far in India. Seems an interesting opportunity for someone enterprising.
