The first tourist into space

If you have an air space transport company that can take you into the sky, of course. You'll be the first passenger, isn't it? As they have in the owner's mind of Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson.

He and his family will be the first space tourists on board of SpaceShipTwo (SS2) designed by British architect, Lord Foster, who planned to fly next year to a height of approximately 60 miles above sea level.

This news is citing from the travelKompas site as quoted from Associated Press news agency, Thursday, July 12, 2012. The news agency reported on during a press conference at the Farnborough Air Show, south London, England along with about 120 other prospective space tourists.

Although the cost for tourist passengers who want to feel what it's like to fly into space for $200,000, did not deter about 529 people signed up for candidate tourists fly into space. In order for prospective tourists are not curious about the planes that carry them, then made a replica in the exhibition.

Of course, the tourists will need to adapt and training how will the situation there, so when the aircraft was flown from the airport space in New Mexico, USA, next year, no more uncertainty.

As said of one passenger, Bill Cullen, 70, an Irish writer, "I want to become the first Irishman to fly into space," he registered as a Virgin's passenger since the year of 2004.

Who will follow? The desire to fly into space has a lot of reasons for it, anyone can. Pay of course.
