Interesting that 7,000+ have already signed up........that is according to Branson....... I'm a bit skeptical, but until otherwise, I'll have to give him the benefit of doubt........

I'm surprised so many people would sign up so quickly......

The part about hid dad wanting to fly though was funny...pretty cool if it happens!!

Oh, I believe that number; there are plenty of well-off people willing to spring for "The Next Big Thing", which this may well be. Even if I HAD the money, however, I'd like to actually see this SpaceShipOne derived craft actually fly on such a trip before I coughed up the cash to get in line. It's one thing for Burt Rutan to fly his little test ship on a few occasions, not entirely successfully, as encountered roll and other anomalies showed but quite another to get a reasonably safety-certified suborbital launcher packed with brave, rich adventurers into space on a regular basis. Nobody, not even NASA, has done that, yet. I wouldn't bet against the canny Branson but nevertheless, I'd like to see Virgin Galactic actually put their baby up carrying those gung-ho pioneer space tourists and bring them back at least a few times before I signed up. So I don't have that true pioneer spirit, big deal!

I would definitley want to see Virgin Galactic fly for about a year or so, before I payed them my millions. I read somewhere that it would be up and running by 2007, I can't see that ever happening. Good concept, though, if it actually works.

Cheers,
