Launching Spring 2010

National Geographic and Virgin Galactic

Join maverick entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson and legendary aeronautical engineer Burt Rutan on their quest to create the world’s first commercial manned spaceship. Over the next two years the project will pass a series of milestones, each a groundbreaking development towards the first commercial space flights.

Virgin Galactic will document the pioneers in space tourism, Virgin’s pilots and crew, and their first passengers – with plans calling for 50,000 ordinary people to travel into space in the first 10 years of operation.
