Virgin Galactic’s Experience of a Lifetime
Be one of the first civilian passengers in suborbital space. You’ll get the unique thrill of a zero-gravity experience, travel at a speed of 2500mph (over 3 times the speed of sound), and have the view of a lifetime: planet Earth from the black sky of space. Virgin Galactic, owned by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group and Aabar Investments PJS, is on track to be the world’s first commercial spaceline, and Virtuoso Accredited Space Agents have been hand-picked and specially trained by Virgin Galactic. Your space trip will include thorough astronaut training, exclusive milestone events before and after your trip, and unprecedented access to engineers, test pilots, and other great minds creating the project. And of course, you and your voyage will make history.
The most sought-after seat for 2014 isn’t at the World Cup or Winter Olympics. It’s on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo. Richard Branson’s futuristic transportation project is set to be the first-ever commercial suborbital space flights.
An overview: The mother ship, dual-hulled WhiteKnightTwo, will ferry the six-passenger craft to 50,000 feet before releasing it to fire its rocket motor and blast to the rim of space at speeds approaching 2,500 miles per hour. Passengers, who will complete g-force training for the trip, will then experience about five minutes of weightlessness and the view of a glowing planet Earth against the backdrop of space some 360,000 feet up. Just don’t forget to charge your camera batteries before blastoff.
Virtuoso’s accredited space agents are the exclusive North American travel advisors for Virgin Galactic flights.
