Yes, you are reading this correctly! We sell sub-orbital space travel! Barbara King was selected by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic as one of the original 47 Accredited Space Agents who help you arrange this amazing adventure to a truly “out of this world” destination!
Your voyage begins the moment you reserve a seat on Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship2. Share your enthusiasm with other astronauts awaiting their journey. Experience G-force and weightlessness in preparation for your flight. Each flight will carry 2 pilots and 6 passengers. Arc your way to approximately 50,000 feet, attached to the mothership, VMS Eve (named after Sir Richard’s mother). Upon release from the mothership, Spaceship2 will travel to 70 miles above Earth within 90 seconds. View 1000 miles in any direction, marvel at the fragile blue line that we call “atmosphere”, and slowly drift back to Earth as Spaceship 2 makes use of Burt Rutan’s unique design of wing feathering. There are journeys and there are JOURNEYS. This is a JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME! Contact Barbara@greatgetaways.travel to reserve your seat today!
