He can't even operate the new train service from London to Glasgow. How's he going to manage space!

I think SRB's finally lost the plot!

In his defence, the problems of operating the train service aren't his fault. Years of underspending on the railways by successive governments and poor infrastructure have left it what it is. He;s trying to get it improved, with new trains and having the line upgraded.

Just watched a tidbit interview with Branson on CNBC...price is $150,000 right now, but if he can get the a good amount of people who theoretically want to go, then prices should go down.....

he was mentioning going to the moon....!!!
